Hand selected from the grove, these calamata style olives are just like the traditional Greek olive, packed in a mixture of brine, vinegar, olive oil, herbs, and spices. Pitted for convenience, these feature a beautiful, dark eggplant color and a smooth, rich flavor with a hint of salt. Calamata olives make an excellent, healthy appetizer or a great-tasting topping for salads, pizzas, and subs.
Each aloreña olive is cracked before the curing process. The traditional natural brine is made of water and salt, and the crack facilitates the natural fermentation.

The aloreña olive, also known as Malagueña in certain areas, is the only olive from Spain with a D.O., Denomination of Origin. Curing Method: Natural Brine Cured; Time of Harvest: End of August
