Nocellara Etnea olives
This typical variety of olives is mainly found in the province of Catania, mainly in the municipalities of Belpasso, Paternò, Santa Maria di Licodìa and Ragalina with a percentage of almost 95%. In these places where the use of machines is difficult, the plants are lovingly tended by hand and the fruit is still sorted and harvested by hand between October and November.
