The Arbequina Olive Tree produces a small, round olive weighing between one and two grams, it grows in bunches and is not so easy to pick with an oil content ranging between 20-21%. It is harvested mechanically using machinery.
The oil produced by Arbequina olives has a high oleic acid content, it is green in colour with a fresh and fruity aroma complimented with hints of apple, parsley, and green grass. It is soft on the palate, not bitter, with sweet and sour flavours and a spiced overtone, especially from the early harvests, before the Arbequina olives have fully ripened.
The main features of this oil are its aroma and its delicate touch to the mouth. It is therefore recommended that this Arbequina oil is consumed quickly, as this type of oil can lose its organoleptic properties in just a few months.
