      Harvest :

      Olive harvesting season, which could go from late March all over to September depending on your climate and therefore cultivar you are growing. Within a few weeks, the inflorescence become tiny white to green flowers. The flowers drop about 76 hours after they appear, leaving tiny olives, which grow over the spring and summer. In some areas, olives are ready for harvest in late August.

      harvest 2-min
      The exact time you choose to harvest, depends on whether you want the majority of your olives to be green, rosy, or black. The point of maturity at which you pick your olives determines not only the taste of the olives you intend to pickle, but also the taste of the oil produced from those you intend to press. Keep in mind that olives must be pressed into oil within three days from the time they are picked. If you hold them any longer than that, it oxidizes and the resulting product is inferior in quality.

      1. Place the olives into a large container and fill with fresh water until the olives are covered.
      2. Change the water every day, for 10-12 days.
      3. Drain the olives and place them in layers in an airtight container with lots of oregano, thickly sliced lemon, garlic to taste and sliced firm green chili.
      4. Continue the layers until the container is full. Boil 5L of water with 500g of salt and leave to cool.
      5. Pour the salted water over the olives etc. until they are well covered. Seal the container. Store in a cool place and keep the container sealed for 6-8 weeks for black olives, and 8-10 weeks for green olives.
