Good to know

From green to red, from sour to sweet, from mild to bitter – the aroma of the most famous fruit on Lake Constance varies. The special interplay of early fog and warm September sun alternating with cool nights and the heat reservoir of Lake Constance gives the apple its unmistakable aroma. About 20 different varieties are cultivated on Lake Constance: Jonagold, Elstar, Idared, Gala, but also varieties such as Cox Orange and Boskop are among them.

Not only does the apple taste great, it is also healthy and quenches thirst. With a water content of 85%, it has only 50 kcal, contains important minerals, and a large number of vitamins are hidden under the skin. It is not for nothing that the apple is so popular throughout Germany. To meet the great demand, around 2,000 fruit growers around Lake Constance harvest more than 250,000 tons of fruit every year – most of them being apples. The harvest season begins in August with the early apples and ends in October with the storage apples, which can be kept well until the next harvest.

Celebrate with us the Apple Weeks at Lake Constance and treat yourself to this delicious snack in many variations!
