It takes seven litres of olives to produce one litre of olive oil. About 90% of olives are used to produce olive oil and 10% for eating.
Fact 2
One cannot eat green or ripe olives directly from the tree unless they are treated with lye or cured either in brine or dry salt.
Fact 3
Olive trees produce small, egg-shaped fruit that generally grow to lengths of 1.5 centimetres to 2 centimetres.
Fact 4
Olives are actually fruits, despite commonly being regarded as vegetables. Interestingly, they belong to the lilac’s family.
Fact 5
The colour of olive fruit depends on the maturity of the fruit. Growing fruit’s colour is green, ripe fruit’s colour is dark purple.
Fact 6
Olive oil has more delicate flavour than regular vegetable oils, hence the world consumes 2.25 million litres per year.
