Description"Most" is a term that refers to unfermented fruit juice (Süssmost) or the "saure Most", an alcoholic dink from apples and pears.
Herodot (400 v.Chr) describes how in the city of Cide apples and pears are pressed to Juice. Pliny the Elder also mentions the production of most in 50 v.Chr.
The production of Most in Austria peaked in the 17th-18th century. Empress Maria Theresia orders that pear and apple trees need to be planted along land roads. Many woods develop, which generate local breeds, which are then spread across the monarchy: This includes the apple breeds Brünnerling or Edelrambour from Vinnitsya. Among the Most pear breeds, noteworthy are the Rote Landbirne (also known as Tollbirne) or the Speckbirne. In addition to the pomologically (fruit tree science) correct names farmers "invented" many colloquial names such as Fassapfel (barrel apple), in reference to the barrel-like shape.
