1) olive– the olive is the fruit of one of the oldest cultivated tress in the world dating back to asia minor more than 6,000 years ago. the olive tree lives up to 1000 years and requires very little maintenance, and olives are the most cultivated fruit crop in the world. today, there are over 130 cultivars, and 30 come from italy and spain; the two largest growers. olives are a mainstay of the mediterranean diet, with many health and nutritional benefits. one of my favourite variety is the taggiasca olive, which only grows in the oneglia hills, a province of imperia, in the north of italy. this small olive has a black violet colour and a sweet, fruity, and mild flavour. Frantoio di Sant`Agata d`Oneglia, is a preferred company that produces among many products, just the most delicious taggiasca olives. either whole or as pate, olives are a luvMUST for the diet of thebestdressup now!
