    We grow olive trees

    Charta has 52 varieties of olive tree in our orchards. We have expanded our propagation facilities greatly and we now can produce 20,000 trees per cycle. This gives us the capacity to produce 80,000 traditional olive trees per annum. We are also an active distributor of both IRTA and Select Nurstech trees.
    We produce olive oil

    Despite the fact that the oldest trees in our orchards are just now 7 years old, Charta is beginning to produce some very fine olive oil. We are harvesting Frantoio, Leccino, Coratina, Arbequina and Picual trees. Many of our other varieties will be producing very soon.
