Black natural


The king of olives from Greece!  Very tasty,  with a lot of flesh.  Also they are softer than all the other types of olives. Their shape is round.  You may find many variations in Greece, ranging from Blond ones to very ripe and wrinkled ones like the Throumba from Thassos in northern Greece.  They come from the same trees we get the green olives following the first harvest.  Best harvest areas are near Stylis in Central Greece, Fthiotis area, Fokis area near Amphissa where their name orignates, Aitoloakarnanias area in western Greece, and Magnisias area near Volos.
