These real Sicilian olives are round shaped with a natural green color. They have a pleasant sweet taste. These memorable yet hard-to-find olives are from Castelvetrano, Sicily (a Trapani province). They have a distinct bright green hue and a meaty, buttery flesh. Just the right amount of salt without any bitterness makes this THE green olive for the non-green olive lover.
Grown primarily in a small town of the same name in the Sicilian provence of Trapani, the olives are known as the varietal nocellara del belice. Castelvetranos are harvested young and cured in lightly salted brine, which accounts for their bright green hue (it's not food coloring) and meaty texture. Having a mild, nuanced flavor that's both salty and sweet, the fruit appeals not only to olive aficionados, but also to those who shy away from stronger, brinier varieties.
