Castelvetrano Olives hail from the beautiful island of Sicily. Their color is strikingly green and their texture is meaty and crispy, yet deliciously juicy. Perfect in every sort of dish or even beverage.
The production area of Castelvetrano olives is relatively small and what’s more, the olive trees bear fruits only in their fifth year. Thus, the production of these olives actually limited and it is not always easy to find them.
Once washed away all the traces of lye, the olives are packed in light brine or refrigerated. This production method also preserves the impressing color of these green olives that, if cured, assume a brown-greenish color.
The method of processing of the Castelvetrano olives makes them oxidize quickly, even more if they are removed from the brine in the can. That is why it is not actually easy to find high-quality Castelvetrano olives in the supermarkets.
