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.
