Maletto Strawberry Festival

When the earth turns red at the beginning of June on the northern slopes of Mount Etna, the inhabitants of Maletto rejoice: It is strawberry season. The small village is famous for the excellent quality of its fruits, which are planted in the surrounding fields.
There are three varieties: Reflowering plants that are harvested until December, large sweet for jam and those with small fruits that are used for pies and cakes.

1000 kilos heavy: strawberry cake from Maletto

Visitors to the Strawberry Festival of Maletto can taste such a strawberry cake. The giant baked by local pastry chefs weighs a proud 1000 kilos - and will be distributed to guests during the three-day event.
There is also a strawberry risotto to taste, photo exhibitions, guided tours of the town and live music in the evening provide the framework for the festival.

There is a strawberry festival in Sicily not only in Maletto: Cassibile, 100 kilometers to the south, also celebrates - already in April - the red sweet fruit.
