Pure Olive Varieties

Want to try a different cultivar?

  • The Ascalano is a large, light green olive native to Italy, that grows well in California. Its flesh is soft-textured and delicate—a more tender variety of olive for people who don’t like stronger-flavored varieties.
  • The Kalamata olive, native to Greece, is also a transplant to California. With its soft, fruity flesh, it’s a delicious nibble—and the olive of choice in Greek salads with feta cheese.
  • For those who like intense olive flavor, there are sun dried black olives packed in olive oil.

  • How about plain pitted black olives or green olives, each with garlic and cayenne heat?

You can find more varieties on the website. When you take a bite, you’ll recognize that these are no garden variety olives.
