Be honest... you’ve always thought there’s green olives and black olives.
As a matter of fact they are different stages of ripeness of the same fruit that create accordingly distinctive colors, ranging from bright green to deep black. Let’s add some light:
there are hundreds of Cultivars
that differ in shape, size and harvesting seasons, therefore the disparate olives age in distinctive times of the year.
Through harvest the ripening process ends and the epicarp
, commonly known as Skin, retains the distinctive green color while the fruits maintain their most peculiar character: the water content..
The processes of green olives...
After the harvest, Green olives, expected to become table olives, are processed in relation to their end use. Fruits can either be sweetened
or processed according to the Sevillian method
, that halts the ripening process. Following the end of these processes, olives can either be consumed or ruled to go through the pitting stage
