The plantations of our olive groves are distinguished by:
- To be curtains that delimit the vineyards by specialized plots.
- The tree inventory is 7000.
- The ages of the trees range from about 80 years the oldest to 10 years the youngest.
- The irrigation system is totally drip.
The traditional varieties of the region are: Mission and Manzanilla. To a lesser extent we cultivate: Ascolana, Sevillana, Nevadillo.
As with the vine, 20 years ago we began planting varieties of new introduction in the region, from 6 countries. We mention some:
- Spain: Picual, Arbequina.
- Italy: Frantoio, Pendolino, Moraiolo, Carolea, Itrana, Nocellara.
- Greece: Koroneiky, Kalamata.
- Israel: Barnea.
In addition to those from Syria, Tunisia and Morocco.
Among the varietal “curiosities” we have trees descended from those planted by the Jesuit missionaries in Baja California more than 300 years ago and from the missions of San Francisco Javier, San José de Comondú and San Borja.
These are of the Mission variety that is still grown mainly in the Southern State.
The cultivation is the traditional regional classic with pruning every 2 years and well-developed growth trees.
Olives are almost entirely dual-purpose: pickling for direct consumption or for oil extraction. Magoni produces only oil.
