For three generations the Arnaud family has been curing and selling traditional Provencal olives in the small town of Fontvieille-en-Provence, France. These olives are cured for several months in a simple sea salt brine. Nothing else is added, leaving each olive with simple, fruity olive flavor. Our olives are among the most delicious in the world. These sterilized tins have a shelf like of over 5 years. Tender olives, pasteurized to give them a long shelf life. These olives have less salt than their fresh, unpasteurized counterparts.
Medium-sized and round, they are harvested in September before their natural ripening so the olive boasts a beautiful bright green color and crisp pulp. Their buttery taste balances between sweet and salty making them wildly popular in salad bars.
