Cultivar and plantation

fotografía
The lands of Castillo de Araciel have an extension of up to 75 hectares and are located in the municipality of Corella, in the riberine region of Navarre. The Arbequina cultivar is drip-irrigated thanks to a marsh which is within the area. The small size of the trees of the aforementioned cultivar allows its growing on an intensive basis. The flowering takes place during the first two weeks in May.

This type of olive is very valued due to its precocious entrance in production, high productivity and good fat yield around 20.5% of the oil. It is characterized by a great cold resistance, a clearly reduced vigour and a low resistance to calcareous soil. The size of its fruits is smaller than those of other cultivars in Spain and weighs between one and two grams.

Natural surroundings

fotografía

The lands of Castillo de Araciel are composed by two areas: "Araciel" and "La Dehesilla". Both are located in the Alhama river valley where the water reservoirs and the orchards coexist in perfect harmony with the dry lands of grapevines, olive trees and cereals.

Due to its strategic location, the reservoir of the field symbolizes the home for plentiful migratory species of birds as well as other typical species of this geographical area.
