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.
For three generations the Arnaud family has been curing and selling traditional Provencal olives in the small town of Fontvieille-en-Provence, France. These green olives are cured for several months in gros sel, course sea salt. The olives macerate in their own juice, retaining a simple fruity olive flavor. They are then seasoned with sunflower oil and aromatic herbs grown in the countryside of Provence. These olives are among the most delicious in the world.
