OLIVE CULTIVATION IN INDIA
Intro
“Olive” is the colour of the latest agricultural trend in India. Entrepreneurs are taking to olive farming en masse. The reason is not too far to see – the government of India has decided to encourage olive farming on a massive scale.
Though the olive has been around for thousands of years, its commercial cultivation in India is not more than a few decades old. As a matter of fact, apart from the neo-traditional use of olive oil as a baby massage oil or the stylish mention of olive oil on the menus of up-market restaurants, Indians, by and large, are unaware of the olive as a plant, as a fruit, as a culinary cooking medium, or as anything else!
No doubt, Indians had knowledge of the olive and its oil since historic times, most probably as a result of trade with Arab merchants. The olive is known in India as "zaitoon" or "jaitoon", a word that's clearly Arabic in origin.
Olive cultivation is typically a Mediterranean occupation. The climate around the Mediterranean Sea is ideal for olive cultivation. The best known olive plantations are found in Spain, Italy, Lebanon, Israel, and Greece.
How well the olive is going to thrive in India remains to be seen...
