A variety originating from Mora de Toledo, its name comes from the characteristic horn shape of its fruit, which is why it is also known as Cornezuelo. In the Comunitat Valenciana it is cultivated in the Valencian regions of the Plana de Requena-Utiel and the Ayora Valley, declining in importance in the Alt Vinalopó (Alicante), and can be classified as one of the main varieties.
The Cornicabra is a variety that is slow to come into production. It is productive, but neighbouring, very rustic and well adapted to poor soils and highly resistant to frost. It ripens late and its fruit is very resistant to detachment, which makes it difficult to harvest mechanised.
It is a variety with a good fat content and yield in the oil mill, characterised by its high oleic acid content, which can exceed 80%, as well as a good polyphenol content, which gives it a high stability against oxidation.
The optimum time for harvesting is from mid-December onwards, although this may vary depending on the climatic characteristics of the season and the state of maturity of the fruit.
