NOCCELLARA DEL BELICE
A Sicilian dual use variety characterized by the shape of its branches and by the expansive crown of modest growth. The leaves are lanceolate, large and dark green in color.
Olives from this Sicilian cultivar are known as Castelvetrano in the U.S. If you haven’t experienced biting into one, it’s time to seek out these flavor bombs. The drupes are huge, up to a quarter ounce, and the brightest green after brining. With a small pit and a buttery, perfumed flesh, this olive is incomparable.
