Olive types :
Green olives are gathered from late September until mid- November in Halkidiki, Greece. The olive is cut off early and with the proper processing it is ready to be eaten shortly after it's gathered. It is a crunchy olive and it has a light bitter and salty taste to it. It goes well with whisky and Greek ouzo.
Black Natural Olives
Black olives are gathered from the trees from mid November till mid- January. The olive is mature when picked from the tree. There are different names for the black olive depending on which region the olive is from. The black olive is round, shiny and not as crunchy as the olives from Halkidiki. They have a sweet/ $sour taste to them when they are first taken out of the salt water solution and with time they become mildly salty.
Kalamon olives are grown in the prefectures of Magnisia and Lakonia and in the greater reagion of Agrinio. The olive is gathered from November to late December. With the proper process (slicing, salt water and vinegar), they have a very strong taste, which is known throughout the world.
