Thassos Thrumba or Stafidaki olives are the specific black wrinkled olives you can find only on the island of Thassos. The harvest period for this delicious table olives is taking place each winter in the months of December and beginning of January, and the olives are black and winkled on the tree at the time we collect them.
In December and January, after buying the best Thassos olives from local farmers, we dry them more with sea salt to release the bitter taste. This process is all natural and it takes about 5 months until the olives are ready for eating as you know them.
In the month of May when the curing process is complete and the bitter taste is almost gone the olives are ready to be packed. We prefer to have always freshly packed olives so the packing procedure continues all summer long.
In our shop you can find different sizes of olive jars : 170 gr, 250 gr, 500 gr, 700 gr, 1 kg and 2 kg.
