Effects of fruit growth and development, different harvesting times, concentration and time of ethephon application on facilitating mechanical harvesting and oil quality of ‘Frantoio’ and ‘Manzanilla’ olives grown in south-western Australia were investigated during 2013 - 2014. Harvesting in late-May to mid-June or an exogenous spray of ethephon (1000 – 1500 mg L-1) two weeks before harvest facilitates mechanical harvesting and excellent physical, biochemical and sensory attributes of fruit and virgin olive oil in both cultivars.
