Apple blossom around Merano

Airiness in pastel shade

It’s time for apple trees to bloom in and around Merano. A white and pink dream. From March to April, depending on the weather. A yearly recurring spectacle of nature. Experience it by taking a walk or biking through apple fields.

The ingredients: the mild, Mediterranean climate in Merano. And the long tradition of apple cultivation. Roughly 17 million blossoms every year. Who is counting them?

Especially spectacular: the apple blossoms clothed in ice. Congealed blossoms, like under glass. Delicate petals protected by frost irrigation. A South Tyrolean particularity. Occurring on mornings after cold spring nights. Hurry and get up early ‘cause the first sunbeams melt the ice. Glitter and blaze in and around Merano. Magical.
