Protected and enclosed by typical island stone walls, lies hidden the historical vegetable garden of ES FANGAR. The “Huerto” bears witness to a long lasting history of growing vegetables on the finca. Because of the incorporation of the so called “Terra Preta” and compost, a significant soil improvement was achieved and the crops thus naturally optimized.
ES FANGAR is home to a variety of fruit trees from the past, which have been preserved by careful cutting and cultivation, and which today bear aromatic fruits and an enormous diversity of our fruit trees. As a result there are more than 10 different types of apricots. The colour sprawl of the 50 different fig varieties ranges from black-blue to bright green. Pomegranates, avocados and all kinds of berry fruits as well as melons and exotic fruits such as cherry mojas and papayas grow excellently under the microclimate on ES FANGAR. The fruits are dried and processed into delicious jams or natural juices.
The diversity of the “Huertos” in ES FANGAR also includes the cultivation of leguminous plants, fiery chilies and all kinds of vegetables and salads. The busy buzzing of bees and other innumerable insects can be observed especially close to the many herb beds.
A daily magnificent spectacle, revealing the cycle of natural connections in the finca gardens of ES FANGAR.
