Genuss Herbst 2021: Everything Plum - learn more about Pemse, Hallmark, Zwispitz & Co

This year we would like to invite you on a very special journey of discovery. The area around Lake Attersee was and is known for its abundance of plums, as well as root and seed primitive plums such as Echte Krieche, Schlehe, Bidling, Zwispitz, Rotzwetschken, Pemse, Punze, Roter Spilling and Ziparte.

Many good reasons for plum:

  • Plums are vitamin bombs from a variety of minerals and trace elements!

  • A quick source of energy due to their high fructose content.

  • Strong nerves thanks to B vitamins! Almost all B vitamins are found in plums - they strengthen our nerves and make us stress-resistant.

  • Protection against free radicals! Anthocyanins not only give plums their beautiful blue colour, they are also antioxidant and protect our body from free radicals.

  • Full throttle for digestion! Indigestible plant fibres such as cellulose and pectin swell up in the intestine and increase the digestive volume.

  • The Doasis zoagt, was los is! Five to seven plums a day (a handful) are considered a good dosage for a balanced diet.

Respectful treatment of the animals and a nature-loving attitude are important to them. Both are partners of the Austrian Pasture Geese.
