Chinese olives

2 07 2012

They are called Gǎnlǎn, 橄榄, or Chinese olives and they look like this:

..and they do not resemble at all any kind of olives I have seen before!!

Quite funny, I saw them at the shop, fruit department. So took them and tasted and maybe a little bit of the back taste reminds olives (now that I know), but the stone resembles apricots and also they could appear like small yellow version of them!!

Taste is ok, not so exceptional though.
