Sweet Tastes of Tuscany: GIUGGIOLE

These strange delicacies go by the name of giuggiole*.

In season for the shortest while, they look like olives but the inside is more like a super-sweet crunchy green apple!

So sweet are giuggiole, that there is even a saying to describe a saccharine, ‘cheesy’ ending for something –  ‘è finito in un brodo di giuggiole’ (it ended in a broth of giuggiole).


To learn to make delicious, typical Italian recipes before indulging in a delicious meal made by you, we have hands-on cooking classes in Florence and Cooking Classes in a Tuscan Villa.

Out of the kitchen, we also have a great range of Tuscany tours, including our great small-group tour, Best of Tuscany.

Check out Artviva Walking Tours website for more tours in Florence, RomeVeniceCinque Terre, Umbria, Naples, Pompeii and more.

We also have private tours in Florence (and Tuscany), RomeVenice, and to the Cinque Terre and beyond.
