Unearthed from 2000 years ago in a clay jar: Story:

Today, the living archeological treasure continues to grow and thrive; In 2011, it even produced its first flower — a heartening sign that the ancient survivor was eager to reproduce.

Maybe heartening. Some of us have spent a lot of time we will never see again killing useless weeds with similar ambitions. 😉

    “This tree was grown from a 2,000-year-old seed discovered at the site of Herod the Great’s palace.”

    Amazing.

    of note, the location of Jesus’ trial/hearing was the praetorium in Herod’s palace.
