Lucques olives are fleshy and tender. Also called green diamond, this variety of olive presents a distinctive crescent moon’s shape, and has been produced exclusively in Languedoc Roussillon for several centuries. Harvested by hand by olive growers, they are soft, fruity and tonic with a slight crisp flesh, and a unique mild taste of buttery hazelnut.
