Apples are a particularly nutritious fruit as they contain fibre, vitamins (C & A), antioxidants and minerals which are all beneficial to the body. Among the numerous health benefits, apples have anti-aging, calming and fever-reducing properties.
The apple season in Greece begins in September and lasts until November. The main varieties used by CHB-VITOM are Starkin (low acidity) and Granny Smith (high acidity).
The main products derived from apples produced by CHB are the following:
