Manzanillo Olives

July 14, 2013


The manzanillo is the most common Spanish olive.

Mansanillos are medium-sized green to purple-black olives with little light spots.  They are grown especially around Seville earning them the alternative moniker “the olive of Seville.”

Manzanillos are prized for their high flesh-to-pit volumetric ratio (8.2:1) and are considered “free-stone” olives as the pits are very easy to free from the flesh.  They are frequently sold pitted or stuffed.
