Where and when the apple blossom is in bloom in Val di Non

Apple blossom in Val di Non is a spectacle that fascinates and attracts thousands of people every year. If you too would like to come and visit us when the apple trees in Val di Non are in bloom, the most important thing you need to know is when it happensAs you can imagine, there is no exact date, but here we explain in detail how long the apple blossom lasts, when it is in bloom in the different parts of the valley and the factors that affect it. This will help you make plans to come and see it for yourself!


Flowering times

We can tell you that, taking into account all the aspects that affect flowering, you have a time frame of about 4 weeks to see the apple blossom in person. And this time frame is roughly from 10 April to 7 May.

These dates are merely an indication as the periods vary slightly from year to year as there are many factors that affect the apple tree blossom. Three aspects in particular should be borne in mind:

  1. the springtime weather
  2. the weather during apple blossoming
  3. the differences in altitude between the different places in Val di Non

The springtime weather


A mild spring, like March and April 2020, brings the start of the apple blossom forward. A cold spring, on the other hand, delays it by up to a week.

In truth, even the weather during the previous year can affect the quality of the blossom: for example, in the summer of 2021, hailstorms partly damaged the apple trees in some parts of the valley and the consequence was a poor blossom show by these plants in the following spring, in 2022.

The weather during apple blossoming


The duration of the blossom depends very much on the weather during those weeks. If temperatures are cool, the blossoms last longer and an apple tree may stay in bloom for up to 15 days.

Warm temperatures, on the other hand, accelerate development of the blossom and it will only stay on the plant for a maximum of 10 days.

Finally, rain is also a factor to be taken into account as it shortens the lifespan of apple blossoms.

Apple blossom according to altitude in places in Val di Non


The first apple trees to bloom are those at lower altitudes and therefore in the southernmost part of Val di Non. Here the altitude ranges from 450 metres above sea level at Castel Belasi to 600 metres at Castel Thun.
The apple tree buds begin to peep out from the branches as early as the beginning of April and then start to bloom around 10 April.

After about 10 days, around about 20 April, the apple blossom phenomenon rises in altitude and reaches the central part of Val di Non. This is where Cles, the valley's main town, is located, together with famous Castel Valer, Castel Nanno, the large lake of Santa Giustina and the villages leading to Val di Rumo.

The last part of the valley to be painted white by apple blossom is the northernmost part. Here the altitude is almost 1,000 metres above sea level, an altitude above which apple farming is not possible.
We are in the village of Romeno, just below the village of Fondo. These are the very last apple trees to bloom and the climax of this spectacle comes around 5 May.

We hope that this information has helped you understand a little more about how the apple blossom in Val di Non develops and is useful when organising when and where to go when you visit us.

However, we would like to remind you that the blossoming of the apple trees depends very much on the weather: we advise you to keep an eye on our social media channels to see the blossoming in real time!
