This shows the matrix we use to identify the quality of the olives after harvest as they come in from the grove. This lot is from our Haumoana contract grower.
Harvest notes from the log:
Good colour range
A little disease (see the two green olives five rows down position three & four have brown spots). These will need hand grading out.
Not many stalks attached (makes for happy hand graders)
Good size olives
No frost damage
Acceptable leaf and sticks quantity
