Apple blossom in Val Venosta: When does it start?
The day in April when the first buds open is different every year. Apple producers can nevertheless estimate the start of the apple blossom. They don’t have to be prophets for that, just good observers: If the winter months are cold and dry, the apple blossom starts a bit later; if they are mild and wet, it tends to start earlier. Especially warm temperatures in spring make flowers sprout.
