HD photograph of Jardin du Luxembourg historical orchard - Page 221



Now this photograph shows a part of the historical orchard found in the south west corner of the Luxembourg gardens, which was originally established by the Carthusian Monks and became the most valuable collection of fruit trees existing in the world, and although much of it disappeared in the late 1700s it was re-established to ensure the continuation of this botanical heritage.

Jardin Du Luxembourg Historical Orchard South West Corner

And today now, the orchard has around 379 different varieties of apples and approximately 247 varieties of pear trees, not forgetting cherry, plum, etc, which has been awarded a title of a National Collection for the conservation of this specialised plant collection that they are trying to restore, yet the fruit never goes to waste, as this is distributed to the local humanitarian association of the soup kitchen in the 6th Arrondissement.
