Use Table and oil

Hojiblanca (literally translated, "white leaf" in Spanish) is an olive cultivar from Spain. It represents 16% of the olive production in Andalucia and is grown mainly in the Spanish provinces of Seville, Cordoba and northern Málaga. It is collected late in the season (March-April), as black ripe olives for eating.[1] These olives are popular table olives,[1] and are also used to produce oil, though the oil content is lower than some popular Spanish olive cultivars like the Picual.[2]
