But what makes early harvest olive oil so special? This golden elixir is extracted from olives before they reach full maturity when they still exhibit an intense green color. The exact harvest date varies depending on climate, region, and olive variety, but it generally takes place between October and November. During this process, it is essential to harvest the olives during the cooler hours of the day to preserve their freshness and quality.
It's important to note that the term "early harvest" is not regulated by any official standards; instead, it is a self-imposed quality standard by Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) producers to ensure the excellence of their products.
