Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil is extracted from the same variety that is so characteristic of the area of Jaén and its neighbouring provinces. The name of the variety is derived from fruit´s pointed or peaked shape. This important olive has an early harvest production and a great capacity to adapt to various climatic conditions and soil types.
