The fox grape is a particular species of grapevines, imported from America for its greater resistance to pests and then used to "protect" the other screws. Its particular resistance to attacks makes it perfect for organic agriculture, and its characteristic to withstand the low temperatures makes it less vulnerable to early autumn frosts, so to be considered as an autumnal fruit. Its strength, coupled with its unique taste, has led fox grape to become one of the fruits chosen by Coop. Sociale San Michele Arcangelo, to adorn with its rows the hills of Corridonia(MC) and to prepare a delicious jam. To create 100 grams of the Organic Fox Grape Jam, the producer needs 158 grams of fruit, in order to assure an excellent product.
The Coop. Sociale San Michele Arcangelo was founded in 2007, with the purpose of helping disadvantaged people to reintegrate into society through new incentives and growth opportunities.
