Some information about Olives.  



Olives are just like wine, the taste of the olives determined by different factors. By the type of olives, climate, soil conditions, the time of the harvest, the season (number of hours of Sun), etc. The first olives are picked in September. However, most of the harvest takes place between November and February. Green (table) large olives are picked early in the season, while black olives need to ripe a bit longer. The longer the olives have ripened the higher the nutritional value is.
