Here';s the good oil. The ancient and venerable European Olive (Olea) tree has certainly put roots down in NZ and adapted extremely well to our Kiwi lifestyle. The Olive is not only a highly regarded feature tree in New Zealand landscape schemes, it is now becoming an important horticulture crop for both the fruits and high quality Virgin Olive oil.  

Both Sir George Grey and Logan Campbell were responsible for planting large numbers of Olive trees in New Zealand from about 1860 onwards. Their legacy can still be seen in Cornwall Park, Auckland, where some of these original trees continue to grow and produce Olives. These days Olives for oil production are grown just about everywhere in New Zealand with Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough being 3 of the key production areas.
