Liguria has been renowned for the production of Taggiasche olives for more than 600 years. Benedictine monks from the town of Taggia developed the species many centuries ago. They are an excellent cultivar for olive oils, and an exquisite table olive. Delicious! These olives have low acidity and a light and fruity flavour. Taggiasche olives are normally harvested just before they mature from green to black.
