Oval-shaped green olives with a creamy, vanilla flavour that some compare to avocados. A delightful table olive, the perfect partner for sparkling wine and highly regarded by true gourmets and olive connoisseurs.

Almost universally thought of as the finest French table olive, they are cultivated on a small scale around Languedoc. Picked young, right at the beginning of the harvest season, they have a distinctive eliptical shape and a delicate flavour all on their own.

Very few Lucques trees remain due to a devastating natural disaster in 1956. To read more about the legend of '56, click here

Petit Luques Appearance: Long, elliptical; bright green flecked with yellow

Texture: Crisp

From: Languedoc, nr Carcassonne

Cultivar: Luques

Uses: Table

Taste: Creamy with gentle hint of vanilla, a little nutty, bordering on sweet

Pairs: While many say it would be a shame to cook with such a delicately-flavoured olive, others advocate throwing them in a pan for the last ten minutes alongside a roasting chicken.

Did you know? Luques trees have quite the artistic temperament – they are the divas of the olive world, requiring non-stop irrigation with 40 litres’ water a day. Pollination happens in a two-day window or else not at all – if it rains heavily on those days, the tree will be barren.

Please note the 400g vacuum packs come as a 'dry mix' (i.e. without brine) and need to be consumed within two weeks of ordering.

NB. This olive mix contains stones.
