Olive Oil Toister
The olive oil at the Toister Ranch is extracted from a number of distinctive cultivars (varieties), each one possessing a unique flavor aroma and color.

The olives are juicy with a rich savory aroma. Its flavor is spicy and pungent. It is favored as condiment rather than as a cooking oil.

Ma’alot – is also an Israeli developed cultivar. Its flavor is mild and fruity, less bitter than Barnea. Manzanillo – A Spanish cultivar whose roots can be traced to California. It is the most popular olive oil cultivar in the world. When harvested green and immature, the oil is brawny and piquant, when harvested black and mature, its flavor becomes mild and buttery.
