Pink apples are an ancient species that has always been cultivated in Sibillini Mountains. They are very small, irregular, slightly squeezed, and with a very short peduncle. They have a greenish color with shades going from pink to violaceous red. The pulp is acidulous and sweet, the perfume intense and aromatic. Their cultivation has been almost completely abandoned: a few very old trees have survived. The cultivation has been recovered only a few years ago, but the quantity produced is trivial. In the past, these apples were precious and sought-after for their preservation features: as a matter of fact, harvested in the first ten days of October, they can be preserved in perfect conditions until April. Indeed, they become even better, because the compact pulp becomes softer.
