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.
This tree in the legume family grows to 5-15 m in height. It bears fruits with an edible pulp and it is used medicinally and as a shade tree. It is easy to grow, with elegant foliage and moderately spiny branches.

Ross sapote is a truly different cultivar of Pouteria campechiana, so different that experts say that it could well be an undescribed species of Pouteria. It is very good in taste and texture, more similar to Pouteria lucuma (lucumo) than to Pouteria campechiana (canistel).
Grafted Tree. La Molina 4 is an excellent variety selected in Peru, with large, fleshy fruits. Lucumo, or Egg-Fruit, is a tree from the cool Andean valleys, at 1000-2400 m. It fruits outdoors with no protections in the southern, coastal Mediterranean.
Tall Grafted tree in 13x27 cm pot. Red Mamey is a tropical fruit tree native to Central America. Incredibly sweet and attractive. This variety Pantin is the best Cuban selection, with larger, excellent fruits.
Small tree from arid areas in N. Chile, S. Peru and N. Argentina, with feathery "Mimosa leaves". The beans are used in a way similar to carobs, to make a sweet flour that can be added to desserts, pastries, soups and even ice-cream. Just like for carobs, the dried pods can be eaten raw as a snack.

Apple guava is a cultivar of guava which is somehow similar to apples because of its size, crunchy texture and remotely similar flavour or taste. It is a good fruit and it is truly different from a typical guava.
This dwarf guava was originally brought from Reunion Island. It is a super dwarf guava with miniature leaves and small, good fruits. It is more a conversation peace than a real fruit tree, but it a nice choice for the fruit collector. It is possibly in the species Psidium guava.
Dente di Cavallo is a traditional Italian variety of cold-hardy pomegranate. Fruits ripen at the end of September. They are medium-large, with a green skin tinged with red. Inside it is ruby red, sweet and delicate in flavour. The seeds are hard, woody inside, reminiscent of horse teeth (that means "dente di cavallo") due to their trapezoidal shape.
