Free event

Today we are giving away apples of the “Finkenwerder Herbstprinz vom Hochstamm” variety and thus celebrate the biodiversity and taste of the north.

The “Finkenwerder Herbstprinz vom Hochstamm” is a product of the Slow Food International Ark of Taste. The Finkenwerder Herbstprinz apple was discovered on Finkenwerder, an island in the Elbe River south of Hamburg, around 1880 by Carsten Benitt. The apples are characterized by firm flesh, balanced sugar and acidity, and a bold, spicy flavor. They are suitable for eating raw, cooking and baking. Thanks to their intense flavor, they are popular for juicing and the production of fruit brandy.

On December 10th – Terra Madre Day – the Slow Food movement addresses the importance of local food and the right of all people to have access to high quality food around the world. Celebrate with us!

Free event. Event organized by the Slow Food Lubeck Convivium. Event part of the programme of Terra Madre World.
