Black Gaeta are black olives made in Italy that can be either dry-cured or brine-cured.The dry-cured ones are wrinkly, shrivelled and chewy with a mildly sour and salty taste. They are packed in oil with herbs such as rosemary.
The brine-cured ones are dark purple and plump.
Either way, Black Gaeta Olives are popular in the Napoli region, and in Lazio.
They are hard to pit.
