The province of Trento, or Trentino as it is commonly known, is a mountainous region and an important producer of apples with annual production of about 450,000 tons accounting for about 20% of Italian production. Trentino is particularly well-suited to the growing of high-quality fruit and Valentina apples are the result of the dedication and passion of over 350 fruit growers.
Over 500 hectares of apple orchards are cultivated by adhering to strict quality guidelines that ensure only the freshest and highest quality apples are marketed under the Valentina brand. The first Mela Valentina was imported in Malta by Fruitland Co. Ltd. on 9th December 2014.
