The famed cork oak from the savannas of southwestern Europe, indeed used for repeated harvest of the real thing! Coming from our mirror climate, this makes a most beautiful and useful street or garden tree, reaching an eventual 50', with thickened, orangey bark and rounded, evergreen leaves, somewhat shedding briefly in early spring as the new leaves emerge. (By the way, pigs love the acorns ... just saying.) Accepts a fair amount of garden water but most at home with long summer drought. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.
