Tuscali Olive Grove is located on the Central Coast of California near the town of Templeton. Our first planting of 450 trees in 2001 consisted of Leccino, Frantoio, Maurino and Pendolino trees. In 2005 we planted 250 Moraiolo and 50 Frantoio trees. These are the trees grown in the Tuscany area of Italy. Thus, we have named our olive oil "Tuscali" which is a combination of Tuscany and California.
The blossoms on the olive tree are tiny but beautiful. Our label has a picture of these blossoms.
