Origin and legend

agricultura_arabe_al_andalus

According to a legend dating back to the year of 1093, during the time of Muslim dominance of Iberian Peninsula, the Moorish grafted olive branches from their own regions on indigenous Iberian olive trees.

This created the Morisca olive variety, a vigorous plant of high resistance to drought and high adaptation to calcareous soils.

The yield of Morisca olives is more limited than other olive varieties, but the special organoleptic features of its fruits have become a precious treasure for the lovers of good oil.
