This crop involved two very important social aspects to take into account: a new distribution of work in the field and a new remodeling of the territory.
The rabada, the quadres, the camosa, sang de llebre, beauty of Rome... are names of ancient apples; varieties of the past, non-commercial but that have perennialized, resisting the passage of time and fashions and that a retired of Arbúcies, called Emili Soms, is dedicated to rescue and recover in his pomary.
In a few terraces, 40 varieties have already been saved and still find new ones.
