Manzanilla Cacereña olive is a native Spanish variety from the area of Extremadura, situated in Central West Spain, bordering Portugal. We have selected olive groves from Sierra de Gata-Hurdes (Eljas) in the province of Cáceres, at North Extremadura, extraordinary environmental setting and beautiful scenery, where fertile plateaus alternate between steep mountain areas. Bathed by five rivers creates a magnificent ecosystem, with glens of dense vegetation, intermingled with pine forests, ancient chestnut and strawberry trees, and small hills filled with heather and herbs, such as rosemary, rock rose and lavender, from which bees feed to make honey.

The olive tree of this variety is early flowering, upright habit and less dense open cup with disjointed appearance, low vigor and long branches. Very well adapted to the region damp and cold weather, the trees enjoy the amounts of water, hours of cold and light, necessary for its optimal development.

 

The Manzanilla Cacereña olive is large, heavy, oval shaped and easy releasing. With high pulp-bone ratio and low oil yield, is extremely rich in nutrients that provide high levels of Polyphenols (natural antioxidants) and long life to the oil once bottled.
