Giant Sweet Green Olives are born in Chalkidiki, a Greek peninsula near Thessaloniki, formed by three strips of land that stretch into the Aegean Sea. The olive tree has been a very important reference point for at least two centuries both for economic life and for the cultural traditions of the inhabitants of this area. They are olives characterized by a large fruit, with a fleshy and crunchy pulp and a delicately fruity aroma.
