Green olives, like black olives, are treated with brine to make them lose the bitter taste they have when they are picked. Compared to black olives, green olives are mainly used for making extra virgin olive oil, but they can also be enjoyed with a drink or as appetisers.
The olive tree is an evergreen fruit tree belonging to the Oleaceae family and is native to Syria. Italy is the main producer worldwide, with the largest number of cultivations.
