A passion for apples

Since the 1960s, apple-growing has expanded rapidly in our area, thanks to technical innovations, production specialisations and the introduction of new varieties. The municipality of Castelbaldo has witnessed the planting of many apple orchards, so much so that it has earned itself the nickname of ‘Apple Country’. The local soil and climatic conditions allow the organoleptic (aroma, flavour and texture), nutritional and health characteristics of the fruit to be enhanced.  Apple-growing requires clayey, sun-drenched soils, which is why it has found an ideal place to develop in the Mid-Adige river region. The trees do not need any special pesticide treatment or fertilisation. The fruit is harvested by hand when it is ripe and is then marketed or kept in cold storage for a few days.
