Here's a comparison between Eastern Cape and Western Cape Olives.

East meets West.

Old post I know but Id like to ask which of those was found in WC and which in EC, because we get both of those colours here in the port elizabeth area aswell as the lime greens in this area.

Jamster and Tony K, the same can be said about Olives found in East London and surrounding areas the amount of greens varry in shades...... some olive babies tend to be born extremely dark and then lighten out into greens. Whilst some babies i've bred start out light green and dark up into adults.

The brown is the typical colour for George and Knysna.
The brown is much prettier :smt018

Maybe to you It Bit Me :smt018

Personally I like the lime greens, almost yellow in colour, and of course I like this black variety.

Remember It Bit Me, not everyone likes the same thing. Each person has their own preferences.

Would it be stupid question if I asked: Do the black and the green pair up in the wild? Or are they slightly different animals from each other?
