The city where we live is the southenmost city in Sweden. Some weirdo has decided that it should have a nickname. The Palm city. You can see this on cabs and elsewhere nowadays. The Palmcity this, the Palmcity that. They have imported and put a few palms in big pots next to a street. These palms are barely surviving. They have to take them in after the two summer months when the cold and darkness is coming. During the years the palms have been there they have not grown at all. The Palm city...in Sweden. Really strange.
On the other hand it's possible to grow exotic fruits outdoors here. All these come from our garden. (Yes, pears and apples are not that exotic, but apricots and vines should be).
We also have figs (not shown in the picture).
