On Saturday, November 5, the day ‘Adopt a tree’ took place in Tallada d’Empordà. The Pink Lady group, promoter of this initiative, organized an outing to one of the fields of Giropoma so that all the people who had previously adopted a Pink Lady tree and had followed its evolution throughout the production cycle, could get to know the farms, the producer and harvest their own apples.
The objective of this initiative is to bring the world of agriculture closer to the people, making known the production cycle of apples and how they are harvested, and discovering the process that apples follow from the field to the plate on our tables.
A total of 160 apple trees were harvested by their godfathers and godmothers, taking advantage of the Pink Lady harvest, which begins at the end of October and lasts throughout November.
Pink Lady is an apple that stands out for its bicolor tone between reddish pink and pale green, it is crunchy, juicy and combines sweetness and acidity in a balanced way. It contains natural fiber that helps to improve intestinal transit and reduce cholesterol levels, is an antioxidant, provides the daily vitamin C needed by the body and contains 80% of water.
In addition to this one, Giropoma markets other varieties such as Gala, Golden, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Fuji and Joya, each with its own properties and benefits. Balanced and nutritious, the apple can be considered the queen of all fruits, an indispensable part of a natural and healthy diet. A bet for health and well-being.
