Abstract The phenolic composition of olive fruits (Olea europaea L.) (cv. Picual, Villalonga, Alfafarenca, and Cornicabra) grown in different areas of Spain was studied by high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. Different levels of tyrosol, catechin, p-coumaric acid, rutin, luteolin, and oleuropein were observed in the different varieties analyzed. Treating the fruit with 0.3\% Brotomax 50 days after anthesis had a beneficial effect on fruit size, oil content, levels of polyphenolic compounds, and Trolox-equivalent antioxidant activity (TEAC) in all the varieties analyzed.
