The Arbequina variety is known for its highly aromatic and small fruit. In Europe this variety is mostly grown in Spain, however it is highly adaptable to different conditions of climate and soil. This fruit loves hot, dry summers and it is generally a late harvest variety. Arbequina has an early growing cycle to fruit production and can produce as early as its third year! Many growers and producers favor this variety because of its constant annual crop averages. Our Arbequina oil has many beautiful characteristics, however one of the best has to be its aroma, which is bright and fruity with a hint of ripe banana! This oil is creamy and slightly peppery on the palette, with notes of artichoke and a nicely pungent finish. Enjoy!
