The olive tree spread to the Mediterranean basin over 6,000 years ago now, using the same techniques used for centuries, we are proud to bring you this beautiful mix of Mediterranean Olives (Calcidica Sweet & Salted, Nocellara del Belice) for you and your family to enjoy.
Found in the Belice valley of Sicily, the Nocellara olive trees grow up in the shadows of the ancient temple Selinunte from the 5th Century B.C. The Mediterranean climate, along with the red ground, give these olives their definite characteristics. Spherical in shape and mid sized, these olives become a purplish/reddish color when fully ripened. They are harvested at the perfect time giving you a crisp olive that is sure to be enjoyed.
Green in color, these Calcidica olives are found on the Calcidica peninsula of Greece close to Mount Athos. Sometimes referred to as Halkidiki olives (as they grow in the Halkidiki region of northern Greece), they are generally harvested when they are young, giving them a soft texture and full flavor.
