Sibillini Mountains Pink Apples

These pink apples have long been cultivated in the foothills leading up towards the slopes of the Sibillini Mountains, at altitudes between 450 and 900 meters above sea level. The Presidium has identified eight ecotypes, belonging to three groups, with varying colors and textures. However, they all have sweet, slightly acidic flesh and an intense, aromatic fragrance. Very small, irregularly shaped, slightly squashed and with a short stalk, the apples are delicious but not very striking in appearance. This makes it hard for them to compete with the modern varieties currently found on the market.

Their cultivation had been almost completely abandoned, but it began to be revived a few years ago. The Presidium producers are joined in an association called Rosa, which has established eco-friendly cultivation techniques, guarantees the quality of the fruit and is working to market the apples at a profitable price by promoting them vigorously.
