Why do green olives come packaged in a glass jar, but black ones come in cans?

Here, I agree, most green olives come in jars but the black ones come in both jars and cans. I don't  mind which way they come, I just like olives !

Why is it that green olives come in glass jars but black olives come in cans?

TL;DR?

Artificial ripening process for black olives.

A fascinating link. 101 things I didn't know about olives. And there I was thinking green and black were merely different varieties.

 

I still like them !

All this information.

 

Animal - thanks for the link and info. Love the Straight Dope. Raised in Chicago & grew up reading Cecil.

 

Like NickAu, I tend to get mine at a store where they sell the green ones at an olive bar. All different kinds offered but I get mine stuffed with Blue Cheese!

 

That's, that's like a meal.

 

Just add a good Gin and it's 2 parts of the Food Pyramid...I think.

 

 

boopme - I'm living here in the Dirty South and have yet to run across those Tomolives, but rest assured, I'll be on the prowl this weekend.

Why ruin the gin ?  A dish of olives on the side . . .

 

Far more nutritious. And it's three parts - remember the botanicals !

@ Chris Cosgrove - excellent point and reminder.

 

Perhaps 1 with and 1 without, just to make sure. 

 

Wait until I tell Mrs. Smarty Pants I'm trying this whole thing out due to one of the Posts I'm following on Bleeping.

 

"So you see honey, there's this gentleman from Scotland that reminded me of the botanical nature of this bottle..."

 

I love this place.
