Fruit was very important for the Romans, for example as a dessert. In the 1st century BC Lucullus brought the first cherries from Asia Minor to Italy. In fact, it was the Romans who introduced cultivated fruit to our lattitude. Until then, there had only been smaller, wild fruit. A variety of common as well as rarer fruit types have been planted in the Roman Park since 2004. Signs inform visitors about their characteristics. With its fruit trees and the meadow orchard that was planted in 2009, Roman Park Ruffenhofen has also been included as a station along the Franconian "Moststraße" (Apple Cider Road).
