Product Description

Empeltre (also called aragón) are a variety which is typically found in the Aragón region, although the growing area also extends to other regions close by (La Rioja and Catalonia), and even to the Valencian Community and Balearic Islands. The name Empeltre derives from the Catalan word "empelt", meaning graft. This is due to the fact that grafting has most likely been the usual method of propagation for this crop, as it is very difficult to root.

As an eating olive, it is commercialized black, and in a marinade. This type of olive is mainly destined for eating directly or as a garnish, almost always in the form of black olives, after they have undergone various curing and sweetening processes.
