They do look like edible olives, but it would help if you show us a photo of the tree itself. I've had them at home in Arizona and it's fun to process the olives if you're up for a project!

There are a lot of olive trees in Sacramento. A photo of the entire tree would be helpful for a possitive ID.

They look fine, and I can't ID different olive species. I hope someone will know which one this is. I hope whoever owns the trees will use the olives. Otherwise they make a huge mess, especially on patios or paving. We normally just sprayed them with a product to keep the olives from forming to avoid messes.
Edited to add that all birds love eating them! We used to end up with little olive pits all over our patios after the birds were done eating them.

It might be 'Arbequina'. There's a grove of it not far from me which shows it's hardiness.
