The “Campania Felix Apple” has a two thousand years history. One of the main proofs is the painting found in the Archeological site of Herculaneum, a Roman city that was destroyed and buried by lava together with Pompeii during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.
The Pliny’s Apple has really unique features:
High content of Vitamins (B1, B2, PP, C)
High content of Minerals (K, Mg, Fe, P)
Very rich in Fibers
Great Acid/Sugar ratio
Reccomended in diets for diabetics
Incomparable Organoleptic properties
The crunchy flesh and the sweet taste make this apple recognizable among every other variety.
The University Federico II of Naples defined the Annurca Apples as a concentrate of wellness due to different scientific discoveries that researchers made on this special fruits of Campania Region, a true protagonist of the Mediterranean Diet (UNESCO World Heritage since 2010).
Scientists analysed the polyphenolic content of this apple variety and they found that these fruits, cultivated on the Phlegrean Fields, have the highest oligomeric procyanidins concentration (specifically in procyanidin B2) compared to the common varieties as Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Fuji and Golden Delicious. Therefore, the Annurca Apples are now used to prevent hair loss and to cure gastrointestinal disorders but more important, these fruits are used in diets for diabetics, children and older people.

Our Farm is located in the volcanic area of the Phlegraean Fields:
Land of Fire bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, where the ancient Greeks met the Etruscans giving birth to the biggest Empire of Human History. Land of Gods and Giants, generous and merciless Mother that showed her magnificent power through the millennia.
Thanks to the high soil fertility, this Land was named “Campania Felix” by the Romans (that means happy countryside) due to the production of unique agricultural products, that still today reflect the gastronomic traditions of Eastern and Western civilizations that lived here. In this Land was built the “Keystone” that even now supports the foundations of civilised human society.
The natural vocation of this territory and the consciousness of our origins make our farm an ambassador of ancient cultures and traditions, through the production of organic vegetables and fruits.
“No place in the World is as splendid as Baia”
Horace (Rome, 65 BC - 8 BC)
“Naples the illustrious, the glory of Italy, famed in the world, the mother of nobility and the land of plenty”
Miguel de Cervantes (Spain, 1547-1616)
“Only in these regions can one understand what vegetation really is and what led man to invent the art of cultivation”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (Germany, 1749-1832)
“To my eyes this city has no equal and is the most beautiful city in the Universe”
Stendhal (France, 1783-1842)
For these reasons, we define the apples produced in our farm “Deorum”, because since ancient times this fruit fed Gods and wonderful men that still today are a source of inspiration for Universities all over the World.
