Buras apple

Back to the archive >

Buras apple is a good table apple and excellent when slowly baked. It has a yellowish-green, slightly rough and rusty skin, and a white-greenish, crunchy pulp with a sweet-acidulous taste. It ripens between the end of September and the beginning of October and, like rennets, it withers and gets slightly floury with the passing of time, though maintaining its aromaticity.It is now grown in Varaita valley (in the province of Cuneo, Piedmont)
