Pitted Gordal Olives by Losada
Losada's Pitted Gordal olives are renowned for their exceptional quality. The name Gordal, meaning "the fat one," originates from its rounded shape and substantial weight (over 6 grams). Predominantly cultivated in the province of Seville (Andalusia), this olive variety is often referred to as "Gordal Sevillana." However, plantations of this olive can also be found in other Spanish provinces such as Córdoba and Huelva. With its low oil content, the Gordal is exclusively utilized for table consumption rather than oil extraction.
The Gordal olive boasts a refined and delicate flavor akin to the Manzanilla olive, accompanied by a firm, crunchy, and meaty texture. Its taste features a well-balanced bitter-salt equilibrium, devoid of pronounced bitterness or lingering aftertaste. Furthermore, it exhibits no abnormal flavors or unusual tastes. The marinade imparts an aromatic and harmonious essence to this delectable olive.
