Frantoio PAIRING: Very interesting for pairing uncooked with salmorejos (thick soups) and chilled creams in which the sweet fruits, tropical fruits and nuts nuances stand out, as for example a white garlic, cream of pumpkin, cold yogurt and mango soup etc. Amazing when used in desserts, cake batters and pastry doughs.

The hojiblanca olive takes its name from the white undersides of its leaves. It is also known as lucetina due to the metallic reflection given off by its leaves when they get hit by sunlight.
