FRUIT REVIEW: Bono’s Castelvetrano Olives

by Andrew Chalk

When Bono’s asked me what I thought of their olives I had to admit that I had never had them. They said they would send me a sample to try. These are genuine Sicilian Castelvetrano olives, pitted and preserved in salt water. The varietal is Nocellara del Belice.

These may be the best olives that I have ever tasted. Most particularly, they are so fleshy and they have just the right tensile strength to be perfectly al dente. While they are green, they don’t taste vegetal in any sense. I could eat them purely on their own.

Bono’s olives are available on Amazon for $8.99 a jar or $19.77 for a pack of three.
