Fruit plants

The garden can be purely decorative, or have greater opportunities, such as crops of vegetables and fruit plants, which are not, however, any less, from an aesthetic and ornamental point of view.
By virtue of these qualities, fruit trees are often the choice in many private gardens, adding to them a remarkable touch of quality, thanks to the colors and varieties of flowers and fruits produced, and thanks to the real culinary delicacies that derive from them. from their cultivation
The opportunities for choosing among the variants of this type of cultivation are indeed numerous and, as indeed for all the species, these too require particular care and attention, in the choice of location, the type of soil, the quantity of water of which they need, of the particular climate necessary for their perfect flowering, of the appropriate fertilizer and, even, in the most suitable pruning, so that they can guarantee the maximum of their yield, qualitatively and quantitatively speaking.
Furthermore, all this knowledge must be specific to each type of designated fruit tree, as they also change from fruit to fruit, and cannot be homologated, only by virtue of the fact that it is a similar general category of plants (a practical example can be that of pruning, which must be different in time and mode, depending on the fruit plant we have in our garden).
In general, this type of plant can be divided into the following MACRO-CATEGORIES:
1. Citrus fruits, eg orange - lemon - mandarin
2. Fruit trees, eg apple - pear - banana
3. Fruit plants, ex. Chestnut - fig
4. Tropical fruits, eg pineapple - avocado - mango
5.Small fruits, eg strawberry - blackberry - raspberry - blueberry

Citrus fruits

The fruits of these plants are probably the most well-known: lemon, mandarin, orange and grapefruit, are those that are most easily found in our supermarkets and shops and that are most successful in consumer tastes.
Citrus fruits are evergreen shrubs, which means that they do not lose their leaves during the autumn and winter periods, always keeping them in quantity and color. The origin of citrus fruits is to be found in the Far East, especially in India.
Even in Europe, however, citrus fruits have spread optimally and the areas most affected by their growth are those that have a typically Mediterranean climate, such as Sicily. Citrus leaves can be different in size and shape, just as flowers also vary in size depending on the species under consideration.


Fruit trees are those trees that produce edible fruit by humans, and that are a source of economic benefit, through their sale. To them we must also associate some herbaceous species, such as melon or watermelon; and in the same way also vines or shrubs, such as vines and raspberries. On the other hand, trees such as the plane tree should be excluded, which, although producing a type of fruit, is not intended for sale and exchange, thus making it alien to the category.
Furthermore, the fruit trees are characterized by having very beautiful and colorful flowers that change from season to season: obviously, in spring, the maximum explosion of colors and scents will be reached.

Fruit plants

Fruit plants are widespread plants in gardens and orchards, simply because they produce very good fruits and because their flowers are such a splendor in colors and patterns that undoubtedly raise the aesthetics of the green space in which they are allocated.
Fruit plants are also characterized by another function: they act as a shelter from the sun, during the summer period, creating extensive shaded areas, which are often used for furnishing purposes; cots and garden sofas find the right allocation in their vicinity.
The right climate and the right knowledge, which keep these plants in optimal living conditions, give the possibility to make the most of the benefits produced by these Mediterranean treasures.

Tropical fruits

Tropical fruits are increasingly appreciated by a good slice of consumers simply for their unique and very sweet, alternative and different taste compared to the usual fruits that are consumed for most of the year.
They are considered by many a real cure-all for their limited amount of calories and as the ideal solution to maintain a perfect line, thus facilitating the diversification of foods in low-calorie diets. Most tropical fruits have important medicinal and herbalistic properties, as well as a particular and unmistakable flavor, to give yourself a touch of exotic and different on our tables, at any time of the year.

Small fruits

The small fruits are very small plants, but no less good and tasty. They, including strawberries and blueberries, represent real little delights, which are very often used in pastry works, rather than consumed in large quantities on the tables every day.
It also seems appropriate to emphasize that this type of plants takes up very little space in our gardens: it is sufficient to remove the weeds to create a green corner suitable for growing berries, currants, blackberries and so on.
All that remains is to choose.
