Their use quickly spread throughout Egypt, Greece, Palestine and Asia Minor. They are mentioned in the Bible, depicted in ancient Egyptian art, and played an important role in Greek mythology. Since ancient times, the olive tree has provided food, fuel, timber and medicine for many civilizations. It has also been regarded as a symbol of peace and wisdom. Olive oil has been consumed since 3000 BC.
- Olives cannot be eaten right off of the tree. They require special processing to reduce their natural bitterness. These processing methods vary with the olive variety, the region where they are cultivated and the desired taste, texture and color. Some olives are picked green and unripe, while others are allowed to fully ripen on the tree to a black color. The original color of the olive, the color is affected by fermentation and/or curing in oil, water, brine or salt.
