Fruit Trees

The maximum evolution of plants is represented by the tree fruit both for its size,and for its product.The fruit is all that remains of the flower after fertilization. It is constituted basically by the pericarp derived from the parts of the flower and processed by one or more seeds derived from eggs.
The fruits can be fleshy or dry depending on the water content, consistency and thickness of the pericarp.The fruits are mainly composed of water, sugars, proteins and fats. In dried fruits there is a higher percentage of fat and lower percentage of water.The fruit is one of the healthiest, nutritious and tasty foods.It is also one of the few products that man eats, almost always, in its “natural" state, that is a food that is caught and eaten as it provided by the plant, grown from rain, soil, air and ripened from the sun.
The fruit tree draws our attention generating greed like no other product of nature, we are not tempted to pick up a vegetable as we are seeing a cherry tree.The Mediterranean climate creates an ideal environment for the cultivation of orchards, so much so that the Italian fruit is exported to many countries around the world.
