    The largest fruit crop on earth is grapes, followed by bananas.
  2. Interesting. I would have thought that olives would be second on that list.

    Bookman: Sir: interesting


    Olives are small fruits that grow on olive trees (Olea europaea).

    They belong to a group of fruit called drupes, or stone fruits, and are related to mangoes, cherries, peaches, almonds, and pistachios.

    Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Studies show that they are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer.

    The healthy fats in olives are extracted to produce olive oil, one of the key components of the incredibly healthy Mediterranean diet.

    I use mayonnaise with olive oil in it.
    So at least that part of the mayo is good for you.:D

    When you have 'good for you stuff' & 'bad for you stuff' together, the good stuff neutralizes the bad.:rolleyes:
