Olives

Olive production is being explored as an alternative crop for fruit and vegetable producers in Florida. On February 2, 2012, the Citrus Research and Education Center conducted a workshop and seminar designed to provide information on olive culture, cultivar selection, and marketing for Florida conditions. The workshop organizers brought in table and oil olive experts from California to discuss the potential for the olive crop in Florida. Below are the presentations made at the workshop.
