We grow five varieties of olives and we use them as oil as well as table olives. The Berruguette, also named Aglandeau, whose capacity of conservation is an asset for a longer consumption period of the olive oil.
The Grossane is the only variety allowed to have the PDO “black olives of the Baux-de-Provence valley”. This variety is grown in our region and has a very strong taste.
The Picholine du Languedoc is not a typical variety from the Baux-de-Provence Valley PDO, but we grow it as it has a high pollination capacity needed by other varieties. It is grown in the entire Mediterranean zone, and is much appreciated as a table olive.
Coming from Salon de Provence, the Salonenque is essentially grown in the Bouches du Rhône region.
FInally, the Verdale des Bouches-du-Rhône produces few oil. As it is fragile, it must be pressed immediatly after being harvested.
