Always as if freshly plucked
A bright red colour, perfect shape and a crunchy yet juicy bite, all accompanied by a pleasantly sweet and aromatic taste. But Evelina® is rendered even more unique thanks to its very long shelf life, meaning it doesn’t lose in either taste or freshness, so that at every bite it still tastes as if freshly plucked. And for growers, Evelina® is excellent in terms of produce, yield, consistent quality and its low susceptibility to fungal diseases, making it ideal for organic cultivation, too. These qualities combined are what makes Evelina® the new star among apples.
Evelina®, exclusively available at van Kessel Fruit B.V.
