Hessian apple varieties as a card game

Ever heard of the Friedberger Bohnapfel, the Roter Herbstkavill or the Ruhm aus Kelsterbach? Perhaps not, but you‘ll find these and 29 other apple varieties in Das Hessische Äppelquartett, a Happy Families-style card game newly released by allesgude. de to coincide with the apple harvest. Ottfried Schreiter, Boris Borm and Hubert Gloss devised the game in order to celebrate the diversity of the region‘s apple varieties and encourage their preservation. Their aim is to enhance awareness of the traditional varieties that have flourished for centuries in local orchards without chemical protection of any kind. The game is available directly from as well as in shops.
