Unfortunately, the olives are not from my trees. olive trees produce alot of olives every other year
Didn't know that! Avocados and mangoes are the same in my experience. I have one of each of these three trees. The mango and avocado alternate years. The olive tree is neglected so I haven't really noticed what it does. This year it had a good crop but I don't know what last year's was like, so it could have been a bad crop by my tree's standards!!

Bilby- you should really check the progress of your tree. Do you press oil from the olives? An olive tree doesn't need that much care. A little fertilizer, some pruning. Just think ... olive oil and olives from Australia.And why not ...your wine is great too!!

No Chefellas, it isn't that big a tree, wouldn't get enough oil from the amount of olives. My first year here, I got a Christmas pudding sized bowl of olives. I think I got told that my tree was suffering from wet feet. The person who told me this also told me to rip it out and put something else in the spot. I never like to rip up trees unless absolutely have to - very much last resort - so I've just left it to produce food for the lorikeets and twenty-eights. There are, as you say, some good producers around this neck of the woods so I have just been getting theirs.
