Koroneiki, arbosana, arbequina, pendolino, frontoio, picual, & maurino
Grown & Harvested on Maui
These trees and their fruit have always played an important role in civilization. For more than four thousand years, the olive tree has been a symbol of peace and longevity.
Historically, the original purpose of growing olives in California was for the making of oil, with the first olive oil being produced in 1803.
Olinda Olive Orchard, LLC purchased seedlings from Santa Cruz Olive Tree Nursery, located in Santa Cruz, California. These young trees were planted in December of 2011. Currently, 1,300 fully mature trees live on the Orchard. We grow one Greek variety (Koroneki) and two Spanish (Arbosana and Arbequina) which comprise the mainstay of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil blend.
We have 400 recently planted baby olive trees as of December 2015 and June 2016. These varieties consist of three from Italy–Pendolino, Maurino, Frantoio and one from Spain––Picual.
Our trees are hand planted and hand harvested with lots of love from family and friends. We are firmly committed to sustainable farming without the use of toxic pesticides.
