Bella di Cerignola Green Olives - Puglia
Olives loved by the Romans
It takes its name from Cerignola, an Apulian town. One of the various theories on its origin tells that it was born from the Roman “orchites” olives, which the troops of Rome used to carry on their long journeys. They went to Puglia and throwing the kernels on the ground at the end of a banquet, they gave life to the cultivation of Cerignola. It is an olive with a delicate taste and fleshy pulp, but the most striking thing is its size which makes it perhaps the largest olive in the world.
