Want to know the difference between green and black olives?

Aside from taste and color, they are from the same tree.
The only difference is the ripeness — green are picked when they are immature, and black olives stay on longer.
Unopened cans of olives have a shelf life of three to four years if stored on your pantry shelf.
Once a can has been opened, the olives will stay edible for approximately 10 days in the original brine, loosely covered with plastic wrap. –
