Fresh Olive Update 2017

1 min read

This year has all the potential to be a great year for olives.  All varieties have more bloom than usual. If the rest of the Olive maturation goes like it has been, we could have a bumper crop and broken branches.

The olive bloom pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago.  Note that the different varieties are in slightly different stages of bloom.  Some have the flower left, others have already dropped and you can see tiny baby olives.

Prices for the Sevillano and Manzanilla varieties should be close to last year’s prices.  If we get an abundance of large fruit (a likely outcome,) we will offer that at a slightly higher price.  Huge olives that you’ve canned yourself are impressive.

Even if you are new to curing, if you follow directions, you can cure your own olives.  Lots of options, i.e. spice combinations, let’s you make your own custom Olive.

Please expect higher prices for our premium varieties, Lucques, and Kalamon (short supply, not for beginners).
