The story of the apple and the “Les Amis de Juliet®” association 

At the origin of the Juliet® apple story is Guilhem Sévérac, arboriculture expert from the Chamber of Agriculture of Vaucluse, who by planting the first Juliet® apple trees on an experimental plot, discovered the enormous potential of this apple. 

Results of this experiment exceeded all expectations. Juliet® shines with its taste qualities: it is firm, juicy, fragrant, and sweet but, as a bonus, it is well suited to organic farming. Juliet® apple is naturally resistant to the apple scab and aphids.

Thanks to its qualities, Juliet® has won hearts of many growers across France, today numbering over 130, united in the ”Les Amis de Juliet®” association. 

The growers are the best ambassadors of the Juliet® apple variety, in which there is a significant interest outside France. Juliet® is coveted in Europe and Asia's markets alike... Our growers are proud to be promoting the value of French orchards around the world.
