Informationen zu South Tyrol Museum of Fruit Growing

One out of every hundred apples grown in the European Union comes from Lana. With a yearly harvest of 60,000-70,000 metric tons, the community produces one tenth of all orchard fruit from South Tyrol and one hundredth of that from the EU. The South Tyrol Museum of Fruit Growing, which opened in 1990, offers comprehensive documentation of the historical development and current situation of fruit growing in South Tyrol. It is housed in the Larchgut manor in Niederlana (Lana di Sotto) – a solid presence with a medieval residential tower and a Late Gothic annex. Topics covered include the draining of the Adige (Etsch) River plain, forms of cultivation, older and newer fruit varieties, pest control, irrigation, and the fruit harvest.
