Moresca : Si tratta di una varietà di olivo presente principalmente nella zona centrale e nelle province orientali della Sicilia, zona di cui l'oliva Moresca è originaria. E’ una varietà che da un massimo come oliva da tavola, ma tramite processi di molitura a freddo riesce a dar vita a un olio la cui amarezza lo rende unico nel suo genere.
