With their rich fruity flavour, meaty texture and distinctive almond shape it is easy to see why the Kalamata is considered the "queen" of all Greek olives. As the name implies our olives are selected for their size among the Kalamata olive crops available each season to offer a fuller & bigger bite.
Kalamata olives are plump and meaty with a glossy skin and show a slight variation in colour from deep chestnut through to dark purple. Like all natural black olives, Kalamata olives are harvested when they have reached a deep dark purple. colour, an indication that the fruit is ripe.
