The South Aegean olive variety Memecik is cultivated on Delice`s trunks. Memecik is therefore a “cultivated wild”, whose asymmetrical oval olive shape with the distinctive fruit tip is unmistakable. It is the queen of Miletus and has been cultivated in the South Aegean for over 2000 years. So it is very likely that even Thales enjoyed plenty of olives of the Memecik variety.
Most of the olive trees of our Mount of Olives Miletus are Memecik trees surrounded by colorful herbaceous meadows, figs, basil, caper plants, wild asparagus and thyme bushes. Biodiversity, sustainability and healthy flora and fauna with plenty of space for wildlife, birds and insects are very important to us. What counts is not the maximum yield but a healthy and sustainable management of our olive grove.
With our early harvested, cold pressed and pure Memecik variety we present an intensely fruity olive oil, which smells clearly aromatic of freshly cut grass and of all the herbs of the mountain in the nose and announces itself on the palate and in the throat with 399,5 mg/kg polyphenol by a healthy sharpness. The acidity is particularly low at 0.24 %.
