PRODUCING LIQUID

GOLD

Olives are traditionally grown in areas with a Mediterranean type of climate to which the olive tree is ideally adapted. Such regions are typified by relatively cool winters where frost seldom occurs, by hot dry summers and an average annual rainfall of around 800 mm. Olives will also thrive under irrigation in drier areas. It is estimated that 2000-3000 litres of water are required for every litre of olive oil produced.
