Bella di Boskoop

Melinda. The best Bella di Boskoop.

The flavours of past times on your table today.

Despite the word bella in its name, which means beautiful in Italian, it is not one of the most beautiful apples, but hides a unique flavour inside: from the first taste, the fragrant aroma of Bella di Boskoop Melinda can bring to mid the flavours of yesteryear. It is a historic apple with a rustic appearance, and is still grown by experienced apple-growers who respect the traditions of the Noce Valleys. It contains twice the amount of vitamin C compared to Golden Delicious apples and is particularly suited for the diets of diabetics thanks to its nutritional value.
