Whole Kalamata Olives

The Kalamata olive is a trademark of Greece that is almond in shape with a pointed tip and a brownish to deep purple colour. It is picked in late fall and is naturally cured to preserve its rich nutty flavour. Its dense texture is perfect for pesto and olive bread or simply to enjoy as a table olive.
