From blossom to the harvest

Experience apple farming in South Tyrol with 'Red Rooster'

Pleasantly whiling the day away beneath an apple tree - this is how lots of guests spend their time on a summer holiday on a farm in South Tyrol. South Tyrol is one of the largest areas of closed apple cultivation in Europe. Apples have been grown here since the 16th century, with there being a current total of over 7,000 apple farmers. There is lots of sunshine and little rain in the apple-growing regions during the day and a fresh breeze that blows during the night. This climate is perfect for apple cultivation. 
                                                                                                                             
18 varieties of apple are harvested, including the well-known Golden Delicious, Gala, Pink Lady® and Granny Smith. Others have lesser-known names such as Rubens®, Topaz or Kanzi®. The difference lies in the taste, aroma and flesh - from sweet to tart and mild to aromatic. One thing's for sure: there's an apple for every apple fan.  
                                                                                                                               
And the best thing - over 500 'Red Rooster' holiday farms grow apples. Bite into a crunchy apple fresh from the tree, enjoy naturally-cloudy apple juice and dried fruit, go on a walk involving an apple tasting session or a cycling tour through the sea of blossom that is the Etsch valley and listen in on the many tales that our apple farmers have to tell of their fascinating daily lives.
