There are 1000 trees in the orchards at Olivopolis. At maturity, each tree produces approximately one gallon of oil a year. The olives are harvested as late in the year as possible — usually the end of November — at peak ripeness, just before the first frost. There are five Italian varieties for our Tuscan Blend, chosen to create a flavorful, fruity oil with a peppery finish. Our Koroneiki, a Greek variety, offers a more delicate, milder counterpoint to the Tuscan.
