Seasons and Harvest

The olive tree is the oldest cultivated tree in existence and can live for thousands of years. It can survive poor soils, with little water, and its hard, thin leaves are adapted to prevent water loss, so it's an extremely hardy and forgiving tree.

Olives flourish where there is good drainage and cool winters, with hot dry summers without humidity. That describes our conditions here at Talinga Grove perfectly, which is why we can produce a premium olive and extra virgin olive oil each year.

Each year we harvest in May, Prune during spring and spend our long hot summers irrigating.
