Fruit trees native to Spain

The fruit trees typical of Spain are many. Here we leave you the most important:

Chestnut

Actually, it is stated that the chestnut tree is a tree native to Europe and even Asia, but it has become so wild in our country that even the Anglo-Saxons themselves call it “Spanish chestnut”.

It is one of the most robust native fruit trees in Spain, with large crowns of leaves that reach a growth of 1.5 meters in height per year.

Its fruits are chestnuts.

Holm oak

The oak is the quintessential native Spanish fruit tree and is found in a large part of the provinces of our country. Moreover, it is stated that it occupies around 24% of the forests or the wooded area of ​​Spain.

Its fruits are the well-known elongated acorns

Arbutus

This fruit tree is very typical of Spain and, to be more specific, of Madrid. It is considered a shrub by many but it is really a fruit tree whose red fruit developed during the fall is really delicious.

Olive tree

Another of the native fruit trees of Spain is the olive tree, the tree that bears the olive fruit that we Spaniards like so much.

The olive tree can reach 1,000 years of age , being one of the longest-lived trees that can be found in our country.

It is one of the native fruit trees of Spain that are distributed throughout most of the Mediterranean area.

canary dragon tree

This tree is native to the Islands of Gran Canaria and its early disappearance is feared due to the scarcity of species that are found today.

Its fruit is a kind of berry and its shape is similar to that of any palm tree . They reach great heights but their growth is very slow. They cannot acclimatize to areas with temperatures below 5ºC.
