There are more than 30,000 apple varieties in the world - each one tastes special, looks different, has a different storage capacity, also shelf-life, and loves a certain climate. That's why universities and nurseries all over the world are looking for new apple varieties.
What we organic farmers find exciting are tasty, durable and scab-resistant apple varieties that fit into the South Tyrolean climate. We selected Natyra®, Bonita and Giga® according to these characteristics. We don't follow trends, instead we cultivate our heritage: in our meadows old apple varieties still take root. Our ancestors already knew them well in the 19th century: Granny Smith and Golden Delicious for example.
