Our Blonde Kalamatas are grown in the sunny, semi-arid Mildura region of Victoria. As the name would suggest, Blonde Kalamata olives originate from Kalamata in Greece. They are, however, a distinctly different variety from regular Kalamata olives and are one of the largest olives available. Due to their size, they take longer to cure than most other olives and over this time naturally change colour from burgundy (when picked) to blonde. Blonde Kalamata olives are strong in flavour and texture and are a favourite among restaurateurs due to their impressive size and ease of pitting.
