Salt in brine keeps the olives fresh and is needed for their fermentation and preservation. They can stay for a few hours outside brine but after that they will be ruined and the taste will deteriorate significantly. There is an old rule we to stress how import salt is to olives and it goes: An olive outside brine, it’s like a fish outside water. It wont survive.

In Greece, it is estimated that there are around 38 varieties of olives. The name and their distinction is based on the morphological characteristics, such as the appearance of the tree, the leaves, the fruit, the core, the relationship of the flesh to the core and other traits which make fruit and help to distinguish the different varieties. Most common and known varieties are the varieties: Kalamon, Konservolia or Amfissa, and the Halkidiki.

Kalamata olives are really unique. The ultimate olive in our book, with its almond shape, black to purple and brownish color, strong flesh and juicy! Baptized and ferment in brine using only natural methods, and later when packed with the addition of acetic acid and/or wine vinegar its what gives the characteristic flavor touch. This unique special process which starts from carefully selecting the best olives during harvest time in November, until the arrival of the olive to our tables is what makes the Kalamata Olive, the Queen of Olives. It is, also no coincidence, that ranks first grade in the “Table Olives” category “, in world rankings. Make no mistake, you can’t beat the Greek variety Kalamata flavor in terms of flesh and taste. Be very careful when you choose your olives and try to avoid Kalamata-Style or any non-Greek varieties you find as you will be disappointed otherwise.

Note to all EU interested parties: Kindly note that Kalamata variety is grown mainly in Aitoloakarnania prefecture, Fthiotis and Lakonia. The Kalamata prefecture where the PDO Kalamata for these olives takes its name, accounts for less than 10% of all the Kalamata olives grown in Greece.  Therefore any demands from EU members customers will be stated on labels and packages with the variety name as known in Greece: “Kalamon Olives” and/or “Kalamata Olives” until there is a final decision made on whether the name will be refer to as PDO or PGI which serves the Greek interests in all areas much better.
