I am a privileged partner of the Orchard of Flavours Botanical garden. This garden, located near Tavira, is dedicated to all the fruit trees of warm climates that can be acclimatized in Algarve. Since its beginning, I took part in this open source educational project. It enabled me to study, plant and observe a large number of very interesting, often lesser known fruit trees, many of which have proven to work very well in this climate.
Orchard of Flavours website can provide you with invaluable information about the world of fruit trees. For example, it will provide you with a list of drought tolerant fruit tree possibilities for your garden. It also contains educational articles, many of which I co-authored, about all the techniques we have used!
A visit to Orchard of flavours is without a doubt one of the most interesting experiences in this region, you will learn so much and Miguel is an excellent guide!
