Throughout the centuries, one of the most powerful and renowned symbols of Greece has been the Greek olive tree. Its crop, the Greek Olive, prominent in all Greek traditions and literature, is considered one of the most important gifts of nature to humankind and constitutes one of the basic elements of the famous Greek diet.

 
The flavour of different Greek olive varieties depends on the curing method that has been used (dry-curing, brine-curing, fresh-water-curing, lye-curing or oil-curing). There are many varieties of Greek olives but the most famous and common ones are black olives, the green olives, red olives, Kalamata olives, Thassos olives etc. Greek olives can be used with many ways, for example into a salad, dressings, pastes, sauces, appetizers or they can be eaten on their own.
