Olive oil from wild olive trees

The superior olive oil of ancient Greeks

Hercules brought wild olive tree with him after the completion of the 12 labours and planted it in Ancient Olympia. From its branches ‘kotinos’ was made which was given as a prize to the Olympians.
Wild olive tree is the ancestor of today’s olive trees and grows almost all over the Mediterranean where the climate favors the cultivation of olives.
Its foliage is small, its growth is slow and its fruits are small with low yield in olive oil and have red flesh in contrast to the other varieties which their flesh is white. When in common varieties an average of 4 to 6 kilos is needed for the production of 1 litre of olive oil, for the wild olive tree 20 to 30 kilos of fruit produce 1 liter of wild olive oil. That is why the production of olive oil from wild olives has been forgotten and is carried out only by a few producers in the world.
