Antiche Mele piemontesi

The alluvial soils of the Bibiana-Cavour area have proved excellent for the development of a flourishing apple-growing industry, which is now at the forefront of the region.
In Piedmont, the cultivation of apple trees and other fruit trees originated at the end of the Middle Ages in the vast gardens of abbeys and monasteries where monks dedicated themselves to preserving and improving spontaneous varieties that had survived the barbarian invasions. The fruits belonging to the denomination 'Antiche Mele Piemontesi' belong to eight ancient varieties: Grigia di Torriana, Carla, Runsè, Dominici, Magnana, Cavilla bianca, Buras, Gamba fina. .
