The classic delicious
Golden Delicious is our main variety and, therefore, the queen of Val Venosta apples. That the most popular apple has a real quality, can be seen in its lovely red cheek. By the way, this is typical of fruits on a hillside.
The Golden Delicious is a winter apple, harvested from the early September to mid-October. The sweet Val Venosta apples are eaten all year round, both raw and cooked, in juicy cakes, apple strudel and stewed. The Golden Delicious developed from a chance seedling way back in 1890. Nowadays, it is considered one of the major varieties of yellowish green apples in the world and has already bequeathed its genome to hybrid varieties, such as Pinova, Gala and Jonagold. The high-yield Golden Delicious trees spread out their roots with obvious pleasure high up in Val Venosta, for high above their roots they produce fruit of an outstanding quality – as can be seen from their tempting rosy cheeks. Truly delicious!
