Hojiblanca olive oil

The hojiblanca olive tree variety is typical of the central area of Andalusia, and cover mainly the North of the province of Malaga, the South of the province of Cordoba and eastern area of the province of Seville. Its origin is associated to the town of Lucena, in Cordoba, that is why it is also called lucentina.



The hojiblanca olive variety is characterized by the white coloured of the underside of its leaves, hence its name. 

The olive of the hojiblanca olive trees is rounded and with a medium-high size compared to other varieties, like the arbequina and picual. For this reason, their olives, apart from being used to produce olive oil, are also used to eat seasoned.

Hojiblanca olive oil has some bitterness average features compared to other varieties. On the other hand, its content in oleic acid is medium, around 65 to 70 per cent of the total fatty acids. This makes it more resistant to oxidation at high temperatures that other varieties like the arbequina or the royal.  

In this way the hojiblanca olive oil can be used for frying and in crude interchangeably. On the other hand, and according to the people from Cordoba and Malaga, it is an olive oil that "grows" a lot in the pan, so that frying with hojiblanca olive oil quite cheaper than initially it might appear. 

The hojiblanca olive oil has generally a golden green colour, although it depends on the state of ripeness of the fruit at the moment of milling. The greener is the olive, the greener will be the olive oil produced. 

Hojiblanca olive oil consumers tend to be very reliable to the consumption of this variety because it has a very tipycal flavour and aroma.

“ Very good olive oil ”
We order this olive oil regularly. It has a very good taste, we tried every sort on offer and liked all of it. Perhaps our favorite is Hojiblanca, but all sorts are really good. Highly recommended. Delivery works perfect.

“ Satisfied returning customer ”
We have been ordering oil here for a couple of years now. The description of individual varieties is very helpful.We love the Hojiblanca and have tried the picual as well which is actually not as spicy as most of the Croatian istrian varieties, so will definitely keep ordering in the future.

“ The Most Delicious Olive Oil ”
I bought 5L containers each of the Arbequina, Picual, Hojiblanca and Manzanilla and we loved them all ! We found Hojiblanca the most versatile. Manzanilla & Hojiblanca are mild & fruity, great for adding to dishes & salads. Picual has a special fragrance - our favourite for roasting potatoes as it doesn't smoke! So pleased to be able to source such a quality product direct from the makers . The price is very reasonable, even with delivery to the UK.

“ The best olive oil, we love it! ”
I ordered for the first time in Nov 2022 6.5L, we love the oil and I'm about to place the next order. My favourite is Frantoio. Also love Picual and Arbequina. Hojiblanca is lovely, but for me not strong enough taste, if you want a very plain taste, go for that one, it is still very beautiful tasting oil. I have also introduced the oil to my family in Latvia and my sister has already received her 2nd order.Loti garsiga olivu ella, loti iesaku! Thank you so much aceitelelasvaldesas! Shipment arrived as promised, even few days early. It was so much quicked for my sister in Latvia.

“ Very good quality ”
Our favorite was the Hojiblanca, but Arbequina and Picual are also very good for a milder taste.
