Our Black olives are the finest olives from the La Marche region in Italy, they make a delicious appetizer, meal accompaniment or along side a glass of wine and a combination of fresh bread and cheese.
Ever wondered the difference between green and black olives? Green olives are picked before ripening, and black olives are picked while ripe, (when the colour has turned from green to black). Raw and freshly picked olives are inedible because of their very strong bitter flavour, so both green and ripe varieties are cured.
Black olives have been given longer to ripen, they have a higher oil content, which gives them a milder flavour and softer texture.
