Soon the Hubergasse in Vienna-Ottakring will smell of fruity apricots again when the fresh apricots are refined into the finest jams at Staud’s. The bright orange fruit are now in high season:
They are carefully picked by hand and delivered to Vienna on the day of harvest for processing. Some of the apricots – they come from the best growing areas in Austria, such as Wachau, the Weinviertel region and the Mittelburgenland region – are frozen for production at a later point in time. However, other fruits are directly boiled down and the fine jams with their typical fruity character can be tasted soon afterwards.
