Favalosa is a newer olive variety developed from a breeding program in Italy. This one was harvested early when the fruit was just turning colour from green to purple, which is why it is quite bitter; it is also very fruity and moderately pungent. The aroma is nicely floral. It has mostly leafy green flavour characteristics of woodiness, cooked artichoke, green tea, and nettle.
