A small oval olive from Italy that has a wrinkled black flesh if they are salt cured or a smoother dark violet flesh if brine cured. This olive provides a meaty texture with a slightly tart to salty flavor. After being brine or salt cured, the olive is rubbed with olive oil, which gives the olive a delicately mild flavor. Gaeta olives are popular as an appetizer, as a salad ingredient, as an olive added to pasta dishes, as a topping for cooked fish, or as a olive made into a puree. The Gaeta olive may also be referred to as Gyeta olive.
