List of fruit trees with a Mediterranean climate

Some of the most common fruit trees in Mediterranean areas are:

These citrus fruit trees withstand the frosts typical of the Mediterranean climate quite well. In Spain they occupy a large part of the east and give a multitude of fruit to their collectors. That is why we place them first in our list of fruit trees with a Mediterranean climate.

The orange tree is a more or less small tree that does not usually exceed 5 meters in height. It is a hermaphrodite tree that reproduces easily and whose fruit, the orange, is used for human consumption, either in the form of a natural orange, juice or jam. The latter is more typical of the bitter orange produced by the bitter orange, different from the sweet orange whose oranges we usually eat.

This fruit tree, in addition to being very suitable for the Mediterranean climate, is ideal for dry environments or for periods of drought. It is a tree that can go a period of time without watering, as long as it is well rooted but if it is still in its first year since planting it should be watered abundantly.

It is a deciduous fruit tree whose fruit is the almond. It can reach 5 meters in height and is a typical tree of temperate zones.

The fig tree is one of the fruit trees of Mediterranean climate. This does not usually exceed 10 meters in height. Its fruit is fig or breva (some fig trees produce both and give two harvests a year, one of each fruit).

This tree can grow spontaneously on rocks or walls and its roots are very powerful, so it must be planted in land with enough space.

Other fruit trees adapted to the Mediterranean climate are the pomegranate or the olive tree, among many others.
