Does anyone know where you can buy olives fresh off the tree? I want to do my own canning and can't find them anywhere except for a small operation in Chico.

My curiosity was piqued when I picked one off a tree, popped it in my mouth and thought I was going to die. It was a truly horrible experience and as a chemist, I'm curious to try curing them myself.

None of those in Ohio so I can't give you direct help. You could look in the store for Moroccan dried olives. They are nasty little gumballs, untreated just dried. I once ate 6 of them.
People in Kali used to have olive trees in front of their houses and rake the fruit up to throw away.
