“Bella di Cerignola”, literally means Beautiful from Cerignola and this is the name specifically given to the olives found in this area. It is said that this type of olive was originally imported into Puglia during the Roman ages. The characteristic of the Bella di Cerignola is that the olives are much larger than regular olives and are often described as being “Meatier”, given the large amount of fruity flesh on the pips. These are the largest type of the Bella di Cerignola variety.

The olives are carefully selected to be the same size, they are then repeatedly washed to remove the salt. The olives are then put into a mixture of water, salt, citric acid and vitamin C. They are then removed from the solution and are placed into jars, where they are covered with brine and sealed.

The olives are ideal to be used within an antipasta or pre-dinner picks and will standout given their size and taste.
