They can't put the cold pressed on the label unless it is cold pressed. So,
I'm thinking it might be other than EVOO. And, the Italians are real snitty
about things that are the real thing having cold-pressed on the label!
There will be a difference in the flavor of the oil and the smoke point.
The cold-pressed doesn't change flavors unless you *really* get it way too
hot. The others get a real "taste" to them if you over heat them.

seeds from Baker Creek and just finished building two mini-greenhouses.
