The early Pinova
Alnova apples mature earlier than the classic Pinova. They turn a better colour and ripens extremely rapidly, which means the trees can be picked clean with fewer harvesting passes. Alnova apples have an excellent storage life and a good shelf life. They are not subject to any club licensing requirements and can be marketed freely.
Alnova grows more compactly than Pinova, and the trees have a drooping growth pattern. As they can be planted more closely together, they achieve the same yields per hectare as Pinova.
2-3 weeks before Pinova, immediately after Gala, two pickings in 1-2 weeks
Varieties and mutations in our Nursery
Gruber Genetti produces the best varieties and clones
Our many years' experience running a nursery is the foundation for your apple growing success. Owing to our know-how, we have been able to increase our yearly production to about 2 million apple trees. We don't just supply our customers with the "apple tree" product but also with the knowledge we have acquired.
We offer the best possible mutations of the classic varieties such as Gala, Fuji, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Granny Smith as well as the best seedlings of new and innovative apple varieties such as Redlove, a scab-resistant club variety with red flesh.
Furthermore, we offer different categorisations. In addition to one-year-old trees and Knip trees, we also have Maxi-Knip trees. These are apple trees to which we have awarded our protected "Maxi Knip" Seal of Approval – i.e. trees with at least 12 useable shoots and some other advantages.
