The Taggiasca olive is a typical cultivar grown in Ponente, the western part of Liguria (Italy) in particular in the province of Imperia.
The name derives for its place of origin, the Benedictine Monastery in Taggia, a town in the province of Imperia.
The Taggiasca is distinct from other cultivars due to its rich flavour, its slightly bitter aftertaste and its soft skin.
Our Taggiasca Olives come only from the Imperia Province. The Taggiasca olives in brine are delicious both as an appetizer as well as in cooking.
