The Canary Islands are a paradise for exotic fruits and we offer the largest selection in Europe of tropical fruit trees. Canarius ships many cultivars of mango, papaya, lychee and sugar cane; and also the more uncommon species such as carambola, longan, noni and the real cacao tree. Only the best varieties are propagated and grafted onto stronger rootstocks. Tropical fruit trees do better in warm areas but many will also thrive in mediterranean climates, where mango, avocado and lychee can survive light frosts and fruit regularly.
In this section we gathered those plants that are said to have a positive effect on health. These species belong to different plant families and different areas of the world. The diversity of human culture has learnt to live with the diversity of plants and some species became therapeutical or medicinal. Some, like Aloe vera grow in sunny and dry conditions and can live in a small pot. Some others will become large trees and need space and time to grow. Remember to be careful, not all these plants are edible, some are toxic if eaten or applied to the skin.
