Hojiblanca Description

Hojiblanca
Type
Oil Geographical scope

Hojiblanca (literally translated, "white leaf" in Spanish) is a type of olive used for the production of olive oil. It represents 16% of the olive production in Andalucia and is grown mainly in the Spanish provinces of Seville, Cordoba and northern Málaga. It is collected late in the season (March-April), which leads to a lower production rate. It is also harder to pick as it rarely falls from the trees on its own.

However the vegetable flavours, smoothness, aftertaste and its lower level of saturated fat make this a much prized variety.
