Heavy Olive Crop 2007

Conditions appear in place for a heavy California olive crop. Farmers prune their trees before bloom to help the trees produce large-sized olives, which marketers prefer. The Olive Growers Council says trees are starting to bloom and that orchards appear ready to bounce back from the light crop they produced a year ago. California farms are the source of nearly all domestically grown olives.
