The olive trees near my house are dropping olives all over the sidewalk. Are those good to eat or should I pick them directly off the tree?
Generally, it is better to pick them straight from the tree. Olives that have fallen may be bruised or picked at by animals, and who knows what else could have happened to them. In either case though, olives cannot be eaten straight off the tree, as they are very bitter. You’ll have to cure/process/pickle the olives before eating, which depending on the process (brine, water, oil, or salt), could take a few hours, weeks, or months.
