Tunisia is the most important olive-growing country of the southern Mediterranean region; over 30% of its cultivated land (a huge 1.68 million ha) is dedicated solely to growing olives. Excluding the European Union, it is the major world power in the olive oil sector. Chetoui is the second principal variety of olive in Tunisia, and our Certified Organic Chetoui extra virgin olive oil is the best we have ever come across! It is made from Chetoui olives that were picked at their peak, hand-harvest and stone-ground within hours of harvest.
Organic is much more than merely a label or a certification. Organic stands for quality and conviction-- for the responsible use of nature's resources.
With its gorgeous golden color with notes of green running through, our Chetoui extra virgin is as beautiful to look at as it is delicious to taste. It has a fruity flavor, with green and almond flavors rounding it out. Its high phenolic compound guarantees this variety is stable against high levels of oxidation.
Our Chetoui extra virgin is a very versatile, all-purpose olive oil, and works especially well as part of a vinaigrette. Pair it with our Tangerine, Blackberry or Vanilla Orange Balsamic vinegars and use as a dressing over baby spinach, baby kale, shredded carrots, goat cheese, roasted beets and pine nuts. With a profile more like an Italian oil, our Chetoui also works well as a dipping oil for artisan breads.
