Apple with special characteristics due either to the type of soil or the microclimate of the region. The trees have a special feature of having a long vegetative rest period in winter, which is of importance for the process of floral differentiation, fruit set and maturation. Moreover, the orchards are located in a region between Gardunha and Serra da Estrela, protected from the Atlantic winds, which grant such features to these apples. The varieties of apple available in larger quantities are the Golden Delicious, Red Delicious and Jersey Mac.
