Granada

Granada

La Española Granada Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains Picual variety, which is the most important in the world, representing 50% of Spain's olives and trees and, therefore, approximately 20% world-wide.

Its geographic location is clearly linked to Andalusia, the main producing region in the world, and specifically to the provinces of Jaen, Cordoba and Granada.

This cultivar is given different names depending on the producing area, but its main name, Picual (from the Spanish root "pico", meaning "peak"), comes from the shape of the drupe, as it is like a swollen teat ending in a point.

The taste of this variety has a great body, normally bitter, with a fresh and pleasant ‘woody’ flavor.
