Fresh Olive Update 9-19-2014

We had to disable the ordering of Sevillano fresh green olives as the fruit picking has ended. We will fill the orders we’ve taken.

Black fresh olives will be the next offering, we hope to offer them by mid November. But watch the website for the latest info as this has been a weird year for fresh olives.

    What is the Ripe Olive situation? Will they be available, and if so do you have an estimated date?
    Thanks, As there were not any last year I am in a desperate situation, as I am addicted.

      Black olives might become available between now and December. It’s still up in the air as a freeze could create a situation where we can’t offer them at all. Keep in touch with our website and/or follow us on Facebook as we will keep these updated.

        Is there a way you can notify us by email once the black olives are available. Last years we purchased over 80 pounds. My Italian family loves them…..

          We plan to, but need to upgrade our shopping cart before we can do that. The best way to receive a notice without prior action on your part is to become a follower in either Facebook or Twitter. We do our best to keep these social media current. We also post to our website, but you have to check it once in awhile. If you do become a follower in Facebook or Twitter you will also get noticed about any sales we offer. Have you tried any of our jarred olives?

    We like the fresh black olives. We cook them in Olive oil for a few minutes then add a pinch of salt. We eat it with Italian bread. Black olives freeze well. We still have some from last year.

      They will be $22/box plus shipping. There will be two sizes available, Giant-Jumbo and Super Colossal-Colossal, those are the same choices we offered last year. Although we “size” the fruit, the sorting is a result of the weight and size. You might find different sizes in the same classification because the biggest olive might be matched in weight by a smaller olive.
