Our Pitted Kalamata Olives are a brownish to deep purple colour. The Kalamata olive is a trademark of Greece that is almond in shape with a pointed tip. It is picked in late fall, naturally cured to preserve its rich nutty flavour, and conveniently pitted. Its dense texture is perfect for pesto, olive bread, or simply to enjoy as a table olive.
Caution: Olives may contain pits or pit fragments.
Olives and vegetables have been integral to the Greek culture since the beginning of civilization. Thanks to its hot, sunny summers and mild winters, Greece supports over 100 olive varietals and other sun-soaked savoury fruits such as peppers and tomatoes. Some famous Greek growing regions include Kalamata, Halkidiki, and Amphissa.
