Starking Apple: Discover its Origins and Health Benefits

The Starking apple, a fruit of intense red color with green and yellow stripes, boasts a unique conical shape and five protuberances around the eye. Its thin skin, coated with wax for extra shine, envelops a white, firm, juicy, and crunchy pulp with a sweet and aromatic flavor, complemented by a slight acidic touch.

Origin and Distribution of Starking Apple: From the United States to Spain

Originally from the United States as a mutation of the Red Delicious, the Starking is linked to the Stark Brothers nursery in Louisiana (Missouri). Introduced to Europe in the 1950s, it has thrived in Spain, especially in Bierzo (León) and Valle del Jerte (Cáceres).
