Together with the sea breezes and the exposure to sun they create the perfect habitat for cultivations. Products symbols of this area are the famous Piennolo Tomatoes but also the grape varieties and the fruit trees.
The Vesuvian Apricots are among those fruits cultivable just in this territorial context. The qualities of the ground give it a particular taste, changeable according to the subspecies of apricot. In facts the ancient varieties “Crisommola”, Neapolitan term for apricot, are more than seventy and are all different for colour shades, dimensions, smells and tastes.
