California Olives | Facts & Information about the Calilfornia Olive


In the first segment of our eleven-part California Olive series, we meet Frieda Ehmann, pioneer of the California black ripe olive curing method. Frieda founded Ehmann Olive Company back in 1897, starting with a few barrels of olives in her basement and quickly growing into a full-fledged olive curing company. The curing plant, now DeLallo/Ehmann, is where all DeLallo Sevillano olives are cured.

To learn more about California olives, and how DeLallo grows and cures the Sevillano we use as stuffed olives, check out the rest of the California Olive series.
