Apples from South Tyrol
A crunchy culinary experience
Apples are - not only because of Adam and Eve - one of the oldest cultured fruit known to humans. King Ramesses already valued the medicinal properties of this round fruit. It is said that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Apples contain 85 per cent water, hardly any fat, but are full of valuable components such as vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. Their vitamin C content is particularly important: the average of 2 mg/100 g corresponds to 15 per cent of the recommended daily requirements. The constituents of this wonderful fruit fight against free radicals and therefore slow down the ageing process, keep the skin toned, reduce susceptibility to illness in general and to diabetes and cancer in particular, and can help prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Around Terlano, Vilpiano and Settequerce there is a sea of apples orchards with several types of crunchy apples. During guided apple tours you discover plenty of interesting information about the “crispy South Tyrolean”. And the best bit: just take a bite! Enjoy!
