Old apple varieties

Kalotaszeg and surroundings

Calendar for the year 2024

These apple varieties were collected in the fall of 2023 as part of a project of Noah's Ark and Genetic Foundation (Austria). So far we have found 24 varieties in Kalotaszeg and
and its surroundings. We will continue our work to collect and grow as many historical varieties as possible for future generations. 
The names of the apple varieties come from the owners and our consultants. These names may sometimes differ from the official names of the apples or those listed in books. 
With this calendar we want to promote our old varieties and sensitize people to plant juicy, beautiful plants in their gardens again, healthy apple trees with a long history.
