This is currently South Africa’s most popular cultivar. It is highly adaptable and dual-purpose as it produces both table olives and oil. The fruit bears early, but ripens late, and is firm even when ripe. This American cultivar produces both black and green olives, although its oil yield is often lower than other cultivars at 12-16%.
Baleia olives come in four different flavours:
240ml, 375ml, 750ml Glass Jar
Owned by the Joubert family, they began planting olives in 2008 and the first bottle of their extra virgin olive oil was produced in 2012.
