Photographer's Note

Turkish olives and olive oil on sale at a covered local market in Bursa. I didn't buy any, but some of the local pizzerias I visited, no doubt did source their olives from here. Nearby Gemlik is famous for its black olives. The climate of Marmara is perfect for olive growing with hot summers & cold winters.

The word 'olive' derives from Latin ŏlīva ("olive fruit", "olive tree"), possibly through Etruscan 𐌀𐌅𐌉𐌄𐌋𐌄 (eleiva) from the archaic Proto-Greek form *ἐλαίϝα (*elaíwa) (Classic Greek ἐλαία elaía, "olive fruit", "olive tree").
