AN APPLE PARADISE

Marlene® apples are created, grow and are sold by VOG, the Alto Adige Fruit Growers Cooperative with 16 member cooperatives representing 5,200 producers that together harvest some 600,000 tonnes of apples a year, equal to 25% of the Italian harvest. Other than 7 Marlene® apples, the VOG Consortium harvests and sells 4 other varieties that are highly valued and always in demand: Pink Lady®, Kanzi®, Modì® and Rubens®. Would you like to find out about them? Let's meet them one by one.
