Organic Throuba Olives 180g

Throuba olives come from Thassos, the northernmost island in Greece and are uniquely left to ripen on the tree, so require very little processing when they are harvested in winter. They are medium-sized, wrinkled and naturally dry, with just a little salt and oil added for taste. Throubas have a moreish, bitter-sweet flavour and are very low in acidity, making them a lovely table olive that pairs well with most foods. They are the only olives that can be plucked and eaten straight from the tree, naturally losing their bitterness the more they ripen.

Tzortzopoulos Estate, Kythira, Ionian Islands

Astarti is based on the island of Kythira and has been involved in organic farming since 1992, when Harry Tzortzopoulos returned to his forefathers’ island after university to take over his family’s olive groves. Organic farming and environmental awareness are at the heart of the Astarti philosophy, and they channel this into developing sustainable local produce and maintaining an active participation in the protection of the Kytherian land through ethical collaboration. Apart from their olive oil, they hand-harvest fine sea salt from the rocky shores of the island.
