The Pinova is an average-sized apple. Nearly half of the Pinova skin is a bright red colour. This colour gives the variety a inviting appearance that distinguishes the Pinova from other two-coloured varieties. The Pinova is yellow-green and the apple has a juicy, sweet-tart flavour.

Cultivation area

With a production of nearly 1 million tonnes, South Tyrol is one of the “big players” in apple sales. Every second apple harvested in Italy comes from South Tyrol. This represents 50% of the Italian and 10% of the European apple harvest. Almost 45% of the apples are sold in South Tyrol and the rest of Italy. The next most important export market is Germany with around 20%. Spain, Scandinavia and the Arab countries are also important markets for South Tyrolean apples.
