More info: Ascolano is a Tuscan variety. Most Ascolano are planted in Northern California in the USA, above Sacramento (which is where our fruit comes from). There are also large plantings in Central California by Lindsay, where there is a large amount of olives planted for table olives. The Ascolano was originally planted for table olives in California, however the processors found that it's fruit bruised too easily, so they stopped buying it, leaving many growers looking for a home for their Ascolano olives. In 2005 I started to crush Ascolano olives for oil, I was one of the first to crush table olives at that time, and it quickly became a favorite of mine (and others), winning more awards than any other olive I have ever bottled. It's my favorite due to it's unique fruity flavors.
