The Cornicabra olive tree can tolerate frosts and droughts, which is one of the reasons why plantations of this olive tree have increased so much.
The olive is elongated and rather bent, asymmetrical, plump and flat at the back, with a horn-shaped belly.
The oils are fruity and have noticeable balance between sweet at first, the bitterness of green leaves and a medium-intense peppery flavour. Their texture is smooth and velvety. They are stable oils because of their high content in monounsaturated fatty acids. The balance composition of essential fatty acids, high content in oleic acid and minor components, which produce excellent aromas and flavours, make it especially appropiate for dietary purposes.
