On the fertile Istrian land are the olive groves of Agroprodukt that stretch over an area of 65 hectares over which the dominant Istrian varieties Bjelica, Leccino and Leccione are cultivated.
Besides the most recognised olive varieties, there also grow other indigenous varieties, although in smaller quantities. The divine oil is obtained after hand-picking and is refined by a cold process at a temperature of 24°C.
The Leccino olive variety is resistant to low temperatures and ripens relatively early (September, October). The variety is suitable for intensive plantations, and has good and constant fertility and gives fleshy fruits of an oblong pit. The Leccione variety is an imported variety of olive that originates from Italy and from this olive there comes an excellent oil of harmonious and aromatic aromas, an accentuated fruitiness of olive, radicchio and aromatic herbs. The Istrian Bjelica is a variety that is the most resistant to low temperatures and the harsh Bura wind. It ripens relatively late (November) and has very good fertility. Its fruit, during ripening, changes colour from light yellow-green to red with purple shades. Due to its fullness, it blends with calorific dishes and sweets.
Besides the classic olive oil product, Agroprodukt has presented a new brand of olive oil, Vodnjanski Torčol which has taken its name from the old name of the press that processed olive oil. The oil is available on the market in bottles of 0.25 l, 0.5 l and 0.75 l. With the mixing of varieties, an oil is created that is characterised by the distinct fruitiness of olive, emphasised spiciness and bitterness. This oil suits every dish, especially meat dishes.
