These olives contain no pits.

Tasting Profile: The Leccino olive is rich in flavour and with a slight, pleasant bitterness. They present the palate with an exceptional olive taste, a firm texture, and a clean full flavour. The Leccino will complement pizzas, salads, pasta dishes, fish dishes, and even sandwiches. These olives are pitted - contain NO pits, and the extra virgin olive oil they are stored in can also be used for other dishes or as a marinade when the olives are done.
