These olives are the famous Hojiblanca ("white leaf" in Spanish) variety grown mainly in the Spanish provinces of Seville, Cordoba and northern Malaga. A highly prized olive that is harvested late in the season and is harder to pick as it rarely falls from the trees on its own. Sublime on their own or use them to make canapés - red pepper and black olive canapés or black olive butter to dress fish or steak. Perfect for whisking up a tapenade for nibbles.
Opies is part of one of the oldest private family-owned food companies in the UK - Bennett Opie Ltd., who have been in business since 1880.
