The polish climate is ideal for growing apples. They also get exceptional care from their growers. The orchards are expanding and the orchardists, who follow traditional ways of farming, look to improve the varieties and maintain their large number. They also avoid artificial fertilisers which makes Polish apples sought after and appreciated globally.
