The Kalamata (or Kalamon) olive variety takes its name from its place of origin, Messinia, which used to be called with the same name as the capital city of the prefecture, Kalamata. A superior variety of edible olives, kalamata olive tree thrives in dry environments with soils of low moisture. The fruit ripens from November up to early January and it is mostly cultivated in the areas of Messinia, Lakonia (Sparta) and Agrinio (but only only). The harvesting method of edible olives has to be simple and respectful to the fruit. This is why our olives are hand-picked to ensure that they come with unharmed, beautiful fruits. The Kalamata olive tree is evergreen and can have a life span of thousands of years. Yet for the sake of quality and in order to prevent diseases that can affect the fruit, the tree is usually refreshed every 15 to 20 years.
