The famous Throumpa Olive is one of the most prized table olives in Greece and most rare to find outside of Greece. Throumpa olives are grown only on the island of Thassos, in the northern Aegean Sea.
Small and wrinkled the Thassos throumpa olive matures naturally on the tree, is dry salted and dehydrated until it reaches its distinct texture and tasty, slightly sweet flavor. It is very rich, with about a 55% olive oil content and a distinct umami of its own, almost like smoked bacon! They’re addictive!
Due to the uniqueness of the olive and its preparation and the special growing environment of Thassos, it is an EU designated P.D.O. product (Protected Designation of Origin).
Our Thassou throumpes are grown by the Velestinos family who have been tending olives trees on Thassou for generations. The youngest trees were planted by the grandparents and most of them have flourished on their land for centuries.
