The wait is over with yello® back – the specialty in the yellow-skinned segment produced by the VOG and VIP Consortia began sales on 31 October with a slight increase in product availability and fruit in excellent condition.
From a sales standpoint, the outlook is encouraging. “Thanks to its excellent characteristics, yello® has won a loyal audience among apple specialists and discerning consumers,” comment Klaus Hölzl, VOG Sales Manager, and Fabio Zanesco, Contract Variety Manager at VIP. “Market demand is promising in Italy, as well as in other European and non-European countries.”
Those who like yello® appreciate its exotic aroma, inviting alabaster-yellow colour and fine, crisp flesh. Its history also makes it unique: born and discovered in the foothills of the Hida Mountains, also known as the “Japanese Alps”, it arrived in the valleys of South Tyrol – Südtirol thanks to the experience and skills of South Tyrolean fruit farmers who are part of the VOG and VIP Consortia.
