A visit from cackling chickens in the apple orchard
Kuppelwieser Peter and his family live in the small village of Plaus, which offers rest and recreation at its old village fountain under the protected maple tree. Peter runs his farm together with his son Simon. They only need the help of extra pairs of hands during very work-intensive periods: In summer, for instance, when apples that are too small are eliminated from the tree so that the other apples can grow better. Or during the harvest season when his apples are picked from the trees. Like all apples in Val Venosta, Peter’s ripen under very special conditions: The great range of temperatures between day and night and the fresh mountain air make sure that his apples become especially crunchy and get their beautiful red cheeks. Low precipitation as well as about 300 days of sun per year confer his apples their distinctive aroma. Peter and Simon are still convinced of their decision to grow organic apples, because a natural production is very important for both of them.
Where I live
The elegant precocity
The tasty gala appears every summer in its reddish yellow shell and the new apple season begins.
September - March
smooth shell, spherical shape, slightly conical, pale yellow base colour with bright red and striped cover
crispy and juicy with firm pulp
refreshing, sweet with little acidity
The image of the Red Delicious is difficult to resist. Seeing red can be really nice. And the red flavour is even more beautiful!
September - July
dark red colour, conical shape, oblong
juicy with very white pulp
sweet, very aromatic with relatively slight acidity
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.
October - September
greenish yellow to golden yellow
juicy with very fine and soft pulp
sweet with delicate acidity
SQ 159 / Natyra®
Natural talent loaded with aroma
The rustic apple with delicate pear and citrus spices keeps the pests away and impresses by its excellent flavour.
January - April
red to dark red, rustic appearance
good texture and juiciness, crunchy and compact
sweet and sour with pear and citrus aroma
The Val Venosta resistant
The Pinova with its red vermilion-red skin is a typical apple of Val Venosta. Not only is it colourful, it also has a very balanced flavour. Thanks to its long durability, it offers you unlimited fruit enjoyment until the summer season.
January - July
Bicolour, yellow to greenish, at least 30% of the fruit is covered with a bright vermilion colour
