Eden's apple orchard
On the southern side of the Alps, at the geographic intersection between the middle European and Mediterranean cultures, lies South Tyrol/ Südtirol. For hundreds of years, the region has been known for its specialties: its cuisine, its wine and its outstanding apples. South Tyrol is a fruit cultivation area with a long tradition. Protected in the north by the Alps, open to the south, the region offers ideal conditions for growing apples. This is a solid part of the South Tyrolean residents’ regional way of life.

Quality from the bottom of our heart
South Tyrol’s more than 7,000 apple growers usually farm small orchards of two to three hectares, often divided among several smaller, widely spread parcels. Every apple variety in South Tyrol can grow at the altitude it feels best at. The cultivation area reaches from Salorno in the south through the Adige Valley and the low mountain range of the Burgraviato up into the Venosta Valley. Also in the east near Bressanone/ Brixen, the South Tyrolean apple feels right at home. The alternating effects of the alpine-Mediterranean climate make South Tyrol a true paradise for many different, tasty varieties.
 
 
In South Tyrol you’ll find a striking juxtaposition of landscapes and cultures.

This weather is good for our apples, because ...

...the apple trees carry no leaves in winter and go into hibernation. That’s how our trees can spite the low winter temperatures.
