Green “Halkidikis” olives are table olive variety grown mainly in the area of Chalkidiki, Kavala, Serres and many beaches of northern Greece. This variety is large – shaped and the average fruit weight is 6 – 10 g or more (100 to 165 pieces / kg). The fruit shape is asymmetric, ovoid, elongated with a nipple at apex. These olives are used exclusively for the production of Spanish – type green olives.The fact that they have a firm skin and come in big sizes is the reason why this is the most common Greek variety that you can find stuffed with ingredients such as garlic, almonds or red peppers. Finally, very recently (05/2012) the Chalkidiki olives have also obtained PDO status.
