Kalamata

Calamata This is the second largest cultivar grown in Greece, and is perhaps the most popular black table olive. The fruit is of medium size and has a very distinctive upturned tip at the point of the pip and the fruit. The skin turns dark black on maturity, and is hand harvested once the fruit has undergone a complete colour change. The fruit ripens late in the season, and is used almost exclusively for the preparation of premium table olives. The flesh retains a good texture, with a high flesh to pit ratio, and has an excellent flavour when processed. The tree is fairly vigorous, with an upright growth habit. Because of its low rooting ability, this variety is usually hard to come by, and sells at a premium.
