Our orchards are situated:
In Provence (Cavaillon area) where we harvest early in the season and produce a large range of apples varieties (Prim rouge, Gala, Golden, Granny, Braeburn, Fuji, Red delicious…).and in the French Alps (Hautes Alpes and Alpes de Hautes provence) where they benefit from the remarkable climatic conditions, the exceptionally abundant sunlight and the important divergence between day- and night-time temperatures. These give the Fruit its colour, firmness, balance between sugar content and acidity, thus satisfying the customer's expectations.
Main points of the specifications of Alp'Union:
1) Orchards localized in the production area Provence and the Franch Alps (Alpes de Haute Provence and Hautes Alpes).
