Organic Kalamata Olives 250gram Vacuum Packed - Greece
Real Kalamata olives are only found on the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece. Growing under the Grecian sunshine, Kalamata trees have much larger leaves than other types of olive trees and absorb more sunshine. This gives their dark purple fruit a dense texture and a flavor some compare to fine wine.
The earliest cultivation of olive trees was probably over five thousand years ago. The olive’s native habitat is the western Mediterranean and in the Middle East. Both the Quran and the Bible mention olive trees, and some olive trees standing today are older than those texts. Carbon dating has shown that an olive tree in Crete is over 2,000 years old.
