  • Losada, Zorzaleña Olives, Whole

    When harvested, these olives are still in the middle of the maturation process, creating a product that is homogeneous in color, a beautiful deep olive green. One of the main characteristics of this variety is the strength and vigor of the olive tree, which for decades has been used to graft weaker varieties, taking advantage of the strong zorzaleña roots. Because of this process the zorzaleña olive trees began to disappear becoming scarce and underutilized. Most of the existing trees are found growing wild at road sides. The name zorzaleña originated from local wild birds zorzales, that feed on the mature olives found in Western Andalucia.
