Olive taggiasche

  • Information: Olive Taggiasca is an olive cultivation, typical above all of the Ponente Ligure and in particular in
    the territories of Imperia and Albenga. Called “Taggiasca” because it arrived in Taggia, brought here by the monks of San Colombano, coming from the monastery island of Lerino. Taggiasca olive grafts were spread throughout Italy in the next Centuries, although the greatest cultivation has always remained in the province of Imperia; this variety is one of the most renowned for the production of extra virgin olive oil and one of the best table olives, because the fruit, despite its small size, is very tasty.
