The olive fly has returned in a big way to Tuscany during late summer of 2016 due to mild temperatures and humidity. The olive trees most affected are located on the coast, but parasite has caused damage to the fruit all throughout the region. Because of this, the olive harvest is expected to decrease to the level of 70% of what was gathered in 2015. The situation is not nearly as diastrous as 2015, although prices have already registered a 14% increase on a national level in the past week.
