The Queen Green Olive is a very high quality Spanish variety, prized for its meaty texture and plump heart shape. This is the primary olive used for making stuffed Pimiento Olives.

It is excellent with hors d’oeuvres, relish trays, drinks or wherever eye-appeal is desirable. Fresh green olives are not edible until they have gone through a lengthy process that includes soaking in brine, boiling and fermenting in an herbal solution.

Although it is commonly thought that the calorie content of olives is exceedingly high, one whole Queen actually contains only 5 calories. The Queen Green variety also has a very low oil content compared to other olive varieties.

When selecting bulk olives, avoid any that are soft and mushy. Queen olives are very susceptible to chill damage (interior browning) at temperatures lower than 36°. It is best to use immediately or store for a short period at 41° to 50°.
