Olive trees require well-drained soil and sun exposure. They need a site that receives at least six hours of direct sun per day. Full sun is ideal.
Working with Nabali olives for its flagship olive oil, Ptora uses one of the few varieties of local olives that haven’t undergone any genetic modification. They are grown naturally, without use of fertilizers and pesticides, and watered minimally. After the olive harvest, the oil is produced by cold press. Then the oil is stored in barrels for three months, allowing particles, which might cause oxidative damage to the oil, to sink to the bottom.
They are then removed, and so the end-product is high-grade olive oil. Part of the Mediterranean-diet lifestyle is using healthy fats, such as olive oil, in place of butter or other fats. Olive oil is beneficial for cooking and provides flavor and texture to your foods. Use this olive oil for Israeli salad - an easy to make, inexpensive, and delicious dish, perfect with grilled fish or meat. You can also serve it with breakfast, it goes great with poached eggs and cheese omelet!
