Green Olive Harvest Begins April 04, 2013 03:35

 

Today I harvested the big green olive tree.  We think it is a Uovo D'Piccione or UDP for short.  We ended up with three of these among the Kalamata trees due to a mix up at the nursery.  Its very hard to tell olive trees apart, especially when they are still seedlings resulting in nursery mix ups being a regular occurrence.

This one tree produced 14kg of fruit, which we will process and make available through the Olivery shop.

As the picture shows they are a large fruit, they have a nutty & light olive flavour.
