    Anyone know?

    I bought some at a Turkish grocer last year and brined them myself and they were amazing! I was sure it was about September but today when I asked when they came in season they told me they were already done for the year icon_confused.gif

    I hope not because I have been looking forward to them for months now, so I can buy about 5 times as many as I had for my experiment last year!

    Your memory is correct--olives are usually harvested starting in early fall. Here in the States, harvest (mostly California) is usually late September at the earliest through into the early spring. Here's a link to an interesting site (I think icon_lol.gif) http://www.saturdaymarket.com/sciabica.htm

    Ah, maybe that's why they thought they were done for the year. I HAVE to get some this year icon_smile.gif Thanks and I will keep an eye out in September.
