The king of olives from Greece!  Very tasty,  with a lot of flesh.  Their variety is called “konservolia” They are softer than all the other types of olives. Their shape is round.  You may find many variations in Greece, ranging from Blond ones to very ripe and wrinkled ones.  They come from the same trees we get the green round olives following the first harvest.  Best harvest areas are near Stylis in Central Greece, Fthiotis area. Other areas where grown are Fokis near Amphissa,  Aitoloakarnania in western Greece, and Magnisia near Volos.
