EVOO is a superfood, high in polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that attack bad "free radicals" in our bodies, ultimately helping us live longer. EVOO's high in polyphenols have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits when consumed regularly.
Arbequina (the most widely planted olive in California, specifically for olive oil). This is a Spanish varietal, smaller in size with a very good pit to meat ratio. The oil yield for this olive is higher than most, typically around 40-42 gallons/ton. Most plantings in CA are grown in Super High Density (SH) hedge rows, where there are nearly 700 trees per acre, and they are mechanically harvested with "over the row" harvesters like trellised grapes. Typical plantings are 12 feet between the rows, and trees are planted 6ft apart. They are fast growing and fast yielding trees. Typically yielding fruit in year 2, and harvestable in year 3. Fruit is fairly small.
Flavor & Aroma - Fruity, fresh, ripe olive with rich red apple, buttery almond and green artichoke. Many say there are delicate rich flavors of green hay, which we believe to come from it's "milder" flavor. Because it's so widely planted, we call it the "Chardonnay" of the California Olive Oil Industry, making it a great entry-level California EVOO, and one you can use every day, in all applications with it's mild smooth flavor.
