The whole Tscholl clan
Korngütl farm is in Coldrano in the municipality of Laces, which is a market town. Josef Tscholl's orchards are dotted all over the Val Venosta, from Laces to Silandro and his family has run the farm for 200 years. Korngütl always produced fruit alongside wine, dairy and meat and Josef is continuing the old family tradition. He plants apples and grapes, and makes apple juice, apple vinegar and wine for his own consumption. He also runs a stud and riding stables. The whole family helps him out. Josef graduated from the South Tyrol technical college for fruit production, viticulture and horticulture in Laimburg. Since 1998, he has been growing Gala, Golden Delicious, Dalinbel, Pinova, Jonagold and Braeburn organically, and very successfully. He is convinced by organics. "My apples are true to their pure source, which is exactly what I want for myself and my children."
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
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.
October - 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 - June
Bicolour, yellow to greenish, at least 30% of the fruit is covered with a bright vermilion colour
