It has been cited that an olive tree usually produces 3.0-3.65 litres of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) per year. (up to 5.0 litres per tree has also been reported) If a standard bottle is 500ml, that’s essentially six bottles of EVOO per olive tree per year.
It has been cited by farmers that the average olive produces about 10-20% of its weight in EVOO. So, if there is 1,000 kgs of olive fruit in a batch, it’s expected that that batch will produce 100-200 litres of EVOO. Parts of an olive not pressed into olive oil can include water and paste; these by-products are often used for other means, including as organic fertilizer.
This article explains how many kilograms of olives that an olive tree produces.
