Bizi - Goxo (Astigarraga)

Among the local varieties of apple produced in the Basque Country, there is one with very special characteristics, called "Errezille".

This apple ripens very late, is sour and rich in sugars, and has a natural tendency to overripen. Organoleptically it is extraordinary, highly appreciated in Basque cuisine, considered to be the best apple, a true jewel.

Historically, it was stored in the the "Gambaras" (lofts) of farmhouses and spread over a bed of dry grass;it lasted throughout the whole winter and was used to feed their big families. As time goes by, it loses water and becomes wrinkled, concentrating its sugars and acids, resulting in a semi-raisined fruit, with very characteristic aromas and flavours.
