The Bella di Cerignola,[1] better known simply as the Cerignola, is an olive cultivar from Italy.

Cerignola olives are very large, mild in flavor, and may be served either green or cured red[2] or black.[3] The variety, which originates from the south-eastern Italian province of Apulia and is named for the town of Cerignola, is popular for table olives.[4]
