Spain is one of the world’s leading producers of olives and olive oil. The country has a long history of olive cultivation, dating back to the Roman period. Today, there are more than 300 million olive trees growing in Spain. The majority of these trees are located in the southern and central regions of the country. The climate in Spain is well–suited for olive trees, with warm summers and mild winters. Olives are typically harvested from October to December and the harvesting process can be done by hand or by machine.
After the olives are harvested, they are transported to a processing facility where they are sorted and pitted. The olives are then placed in brine, which helps to preserve their flavor. Once they are properly cured, the olives are ready to be packaged and sold.
There are many different varieties of olives, which can be categorized based on their color, size, and taste. Olives can be eaten whole, pitted, or sliced or they are also used to produce olive oil, which is a popular cooking oil in Spain.
If you’re looking for a tasty and healthy snack, consider adding olives to your diet.
