The road of an apple
From the apple flower to the shelf: the journey of the best Val Venostas apples
The apple orchards of the Venosta Valley were just a land of pink flowers, and only few months later our farmers removed the ripe apples from the trees. From there, the delicious fruits still have a long way to go until they are put in your shopping baskets and you can enjoy them. But do not worry, you will never have to miss your favourite fruit all year long. That's why we are in charge!
There are no winter holidays for our farmers. Immediately after the harvest, they have to leave room for the young fruit trees while pruning the trees and in this way the good quality of the next harvest is guaranteed.
Old timbers are removed
Outbreaks are reduced
Branches are trimmed
In the spring, varieties that are particularly suitable for the field are planted in the new apple orchards.
Spring great awakening
To let only the best apples ripen, excess fruit is removed during pruning by hand.
Whether it's watering from the cup or drip irrigation, the apple trees are fully irrigated.
Maturation and harvest
