Taste the hidden beauty of opal®

In a world of perfection, it is increasingly difficult to stay true to yourself. If you do not dare to ask “why”, you risk to live life in a superficial way. Even apples have developed into prestigious objects, having lost a lot of their naturalness along the way.

a curious story

In times of the Iron Curtain, people east of the boarders were dependent on their own fruit as imports were not possible.

In order to replace the source of vitamin C provided by citrus fruits, which could neither be cultivated nor imported, local breeders worked on an apple that could replace oranges in terms of antioxidant content. At the same time, the apple had to be robust, to avoid chemical treatments, as access to fertilisers and pesticides was also limited.
