    Raising olives in Virginia

    <table border=0 cellpadding=2 cellspacing="0"><tr><td>
    <pre>Hello, Philip Maro; Delighted to see a transplant to Virginia interested in
    olives.
    I recently
    landed in central VA from Maryland and took a notion to grow olives. I looked
    in on this group for a while but didn't meet any participants from US. I
    recently
    discovered the strong olive community in California, so we're getting a bit
    closer to home.
    I have a huge amount to learn before beginning this venture. Can anyone suggest
    some books on the fundamentals of starting an olive grove?
    The possibility of purchasing a property that might be compatible with olive
    culture
    just emerged. What characteristics should a property have for successful
    olive cultivation?

    Hi Florence:

    Where in Central VA are you located? I am in Moneta (Smith Mountain Lake)
    in SW VA about 30 miles SE of Roanoke. I'm not sure about growing olives in
    VA since our climate goes below freezing in the winter. You have come to
    the right place to find out for sure. There are alot of growers on the list
    who can give you climate requirements. I know there are alot of
    wineries/vineyards that have popped up in the last few years in VA. My
    family in Franklin county were apple growers until a few years ago when
    they could no longer make a profit. Talk to you soon.

    Philip
