The delicate provocateurs of the palate
The delicate fruits with soft shell and hard core love the temperate and dry weather of the highlands of Venosta Valley. That is why they can develop their unique aroma especially well there, and as they have an extra dose of beta-carotene they also ensure good vision, healthy skin and a strong defence against infections.

When and where
can apricots from Val Venosta be bought?
Val Venosta apricots are available from mid-July to mid-August in the retail shops of the Val Venosta cooperatives and in selected specialist fruit and vegetable shops.
About 20 producers cultivate high-quality mountain strawberries in Val Martello, a side valley of Val Venosta. These sweet berries are harvested in summer between June and the beginning of September, which, however, is not always easy as these delicious fruits are very sensitive.
