Antiche Mele Piemontesi (Ancient Piedmontese Apples) is an association dedicated to the recovery, protection and enhacement of the extraordinary heritage of Piedmontese apples biodiversity. The association gathers together many  fruit producers in Val Pellice and also some in valleys nearby.

It’s a heritage saved from the flattening of biodiversity caused by the diffused practice of industrial agriculture. These varieties of apples are protected,  strengthened, studied and enhanced not only because of their history but especially because of their neutraceutical qualities: in fact, compared to more commercial apple varieties the Ancient Piedmontese Apples contain averagely double or  triple values of vitamins and polyphenols.

Being one of the first Slow Food Presidia in Italy has greatly contributed to the rediscovery of this precious range of flavours and aromas of the eight varieties of ancient apples that constitute the Presidium, representing hundreds of others  recorded and collected in the Conservatory of Biodiversity of the Theoretical-Practical School Malva Arnaldi in Bibiana, headquarters of the Association.

• Grigia di Torriana, rust-colored with a sweet and melting pulp
• Buras, its close relative to Grigia but more similar to Renetta
• Runsè, with its red streaks and its sour taste
• Gamba Fina, flattened in shape,  dark red colour, with  white crumbly pulp
• Magnana, small and red with white lenticels
• Dominici, quite big a little enlongated with a yellow rough skin
• Carla, small and intriguing with its typical pink streak on its yellow skin
• Calvilla, scented with its starry silhouette

These are the eight varieties that make up the Slow Food Presidium, but at the farms of our producers is possible to find many other different varieties, as: Champagne, Grenoble, Bella di Barge, Bursetta, Carpendu and many other variants of ancient Renetta.
