Castelvetrano olives do not have this salty and pungent taste which have other types of olives. They are extremely mild, almost sweet, and have a fruity and buttery flavor. That is why they are appreciated also by people who normally don't like olives at all. Nevertheless, their light saltiness makes them popular also among lovers of the cured, sharp and salty olives.
The color of Castelvetrano Olives is strikingly green and their texture is meaty and crispy, yet deliciously juicy. Their wonderful green color makes them cut a good figure in every sort of beverage or dish.
