Apples from Sant Pere Pescador
The Empordà plain and the land specifically around Sant Pere Pescador are mainly used to grow fruit trees. The large areas of apple trees are outstanding, and these produce the magnificent apples known as apples from Sant Pere. They are certified as a product with a Protected Geographic Indication “Apple from Girona” and are easily found in markets and shops in the region. The Golden, Red Delicious, Gala and Granny Smith varieties are grown. They are famous for being particularly flavoursome and are eaten raw, but can also be cooked for main dishes and desserts.
