When Golden meets Clivia...
...the result is PINOVA!
No wonder that it has become a typical variety from Val Venosta. Pinova loves South Tyrol’s west just like its mother variety, Queen Golden Delicious, does. Together, they are the pride of Val Venosta’s apple producers.
Pinova… a new apple variety?
It’s not that new but it’s up and coming thanks to its exquisite taste. In Val Venosta, it has been able to boast the coveted PGI (protected geographical indication) status since 2012.
Rooted in Val Venosta
Do you wonder why Pinova has chosen Val Venosta? Because it loves Val Venosta’s high altitudes and slopes, the many hours of sunshine and the fresh wind. These are reasons enough. Don’t you think?
And who actually invented Pinova?
The Germans. Pinova was born at the Institute for Fruit Research in Dresden-Pillnitz. Fortunately, it found its way to Val Venosta where it got a new home. 90% of all Italian Pinova apples grow in Val Venosta!
Love at first bite
Pinova is a real prince charming. Its appearance makes you melt away: yellow to greenish bottom with more or less distinctive red and orange accents. Who wouldn’t want to bite into it? Only few can resist its balanced, sweet-acidulous taste and crunchy freshness after the first bite
