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.
Arrowroot is a root crop with edible starchy rhizomes, and also a beautiful plant. It grows in full sun with ornamental wide green leaves, which are reminiscent of the more colourful Calathea species produced for the house plant market.
This is the famous variegated noni, found in the Fiji. This botanical variety makes an outstanding shrub with snow-white splashed foliage. Each new pair of leaves is a new surprise. Fruits are smaller and rounder than those of the usual noni, variety citrifolia.
Baobab-like bottle tree from SW Madagascar with an unmistakeable white waxy stem. It is easy to grow, even in pots, but it will never become a really huge tree until it is planted in the ground. We offer plants like the ones in the pictures, about 3-4 cm in stem diameter. It is used in medicines and cosmetics.
Fast growing small tree, bearing cherry-like fruits with a typical taste of well-ripened sweet strawberries. Loved by kids! Our plants can fruit in good-sized pots in less than one year. It is native to the Caribbean and other areas of tropical america but it is now naturalized in many areas of the world.
This banana tree needs no introdution. It is called "Blue Java" internationally. It is an easy growing ABB banana which takes some frost and it is just as hardy as most ABBs like Orinoco-Bluggoe. The blue colour is... BLUE... at least in the unripe bunch before the yellow appears.
This is a selection of the common, commercial Cavendish banana. It appeared in Tenerife in the banana fields of the Brier family. Now it is a widespread commercial crop in the Canary Islands. Very productive. Plants achieve 2,5-3 m (8-9 ft).
This is a much shorter clone of the famous banana named Orinoco, Topocho or Bluggoe. Tolerant of wind, drought and cold. Fruits are very different from the common bananas from the supermarket, triangular or square in section - they can be eaten cooked or raw!
Saba is a hardy edible banana with tasty, thick and squared fruits, eaten raw or cooked, widespread in tropical Asia. Also flowers are regularly eaten as a delicacy.

Spectacular, red-skinned banana. Plants are stout and leaves have purple leafstalks. Fruits are dark purple during ripening and then turn red with some yellow as they ripen. The flesh is pinkish and MUCH richer in vitamin
