Limoncella Apple

Back to the archive >

Limoncella apple is a cultivar whose origins are still unclear. It certainly comes from southern Italy, and found in some areas of Molise, Abruzzo, Campania, in particular in Sannio (province of Benevento), its ideal habitat. The fruit is small, cylindrical and slightly pointy; its skin is smooth, generally thick and not very waxy. It features a lot of lenticles on its surface and its colour ranges from greenish- to golden-yellow. Its pulp is white, firm and crunchy. Limoncella apple is particularly suited for southern hills and mountains; its taste is sugary and slightly tart, and can be used for all purposes: fresh, baked or made into juice.
