Olives grow all over Korcula Island. There are several varieties of course, most of the Korcula varieties are for oil. Olive oil presses are dotted all over the island.

Some of the olive trees here could be 300 years old. When an old tree dies it sends out suckers and then we have a little party of olive trees, growing in a circle around the parent tree.
