A few farmers have started growing olives in south-central Georgia.  There was a big to-do among the foodie groups in GA celebrating the first oil pressed last year.  An Italian friend whose family has an olive grove has doubts that olives will do well in GA - he said olives can have problems in high humidity.

When I commented to him about the abundance of grapevines and olive trees one sees in backyards in Italy, he said, "Over the centuries people have figured out what grows well here, and that's what they grow."
