Taggiasca are small purple olives that have been cultivated in Liguria for centuries. It grows on the Cailletier tree, exactly the same cultivar as the Spanish Cuquillos, and the French Niçoise. The fact that these olives can taste so different purely because of where they grow proves that terroir is everything. They are a great table olive, good for cooking in Italian style dishes - and make a damn fine olive oil too. They have a rich, yet mellow flavour and firm-textured, appealingly chewy flesh.
