Online inventory offline until late fall
Aug 9th, 2017 by Michael

The Consortium is taking a vacation while we prep for winter so our online store will not have inventory listed. You can still make inquiries about available trees but we will be up-potting many of our smaller trees at this time so only a few one or two gallon trees will be available until next spring. If you have a question about any of our current or past varieties feel free to drop us a line.

 

Maurino fruit set

This six year old Maurino is showing a better fruit set this year than last:

and its companion Leccino shows a little less fruit but also better than last year:

Victoria Seediness on Saturday
Feb 18th, 2016 by Michael

Stop by our table at Victoria Seedy Saturday—in addition to featured cultivars such as Amphissa, Cailletier and Frantoio we’ll have some one-offs such as Boutellian—a wonderful French variety. And this 3 gallon Carolea pictured below. Carolea is a hard to find but very good variety for our growing region. It’s cold hardy and produces early ripening fat olives. Later this year a few more trees will come available but for now this the only one I have ready for sale.

Feb 1st, 2016 by Michael

Come visit our table at Victoria’s Seedy Saturday. We’ll have some of our usual suspects such as Frantoio and Leccino on hand but we will also have one or two special varieties we don’t offer online. More info to follow…

Some of this year’s harvest
Nov 20th, 2015 by Michael

The harvest on my trees planted in the ground was light compared to last year but here are some cured olives harvested from the potted trees at the nursery:

5 gallon trees
Jul 3rd, 2015 by Michael

Our inventory grew by a bit last week with the arrival of these 5 gallon trees. On average they’re about five feet tall. Picture below are Frantoio and Nocellara:

Greek and French cultivars coming soon.
Jun 10th, 2015 by Michael

Amphissa and Cailletier (Nicoise) to be exact. SOC will add a number of Amphissa and a few Cailletier by July. Taking orders now at the online store.

Amphissa produce medium to large sized table olives, often brined green.  And Cailletier is where delicious Nicoise olives come from. 

Maurino added to the 5 gallon inventory
Jun 3rd, 2015 by Michael

In case you missed it, a couple days ago we added five gallon Maurino trees to the online store inventory. These are in very limited supply—right now there are six listed in stock…not sure if we’ll get any more than that this year.

5 gallon trees coming in July

Still sorting out the details as to arrival times and how many of which varieties but check out the SOC online store for a limited selection of our future inventory. We also haven’t settled on final pricing due to uncertainty on exchange rates and transport costs but for now we are keeping the old price of $110—if you want some of these trees order now and get on the waiting list at this price. So far, confirmed cultivars include Frantoio, Leccino, Maurino and Nocellara del Belice.
