AMANDIERS FLEURIE IBIZA

A propos d'être une fleur et rien
est votre fleur, amande;
en amour, concevoir charmille,
mère Terre.

Noseas, Printemps: ¡pas!Restez à l'écart,
¡séjour! dans l'âme, Almendro:
Sed seul but vert,
Vert sans être.

         (poèmes d'amour et de guerre.
Miguel Hernandez)

Encouraged by the temperate Mediterranean climate, the first variety of the island almond trees timidly begin to bud in late January.

Encouraged by the temperate Mediterranean climate, the first variety of the island’s more than 117,000 almond trees timidly begin to bud in late January, a foretaste of the exquisite fields blanketed by white, delicate flowers that burst into bloom between late January and mid-February. Be it in a lone specimen or a riot of flowers, this surprising and omnipresent forerunner of spring is a special treat for visitors.

A closer look at this man-made display of nature reveals in detail the colours of these flowers, which range from the purest white to pink. A unique and guaranteed opportunity for photography lovers to take an unforgettable memory back home with them.

The cultivation of almond trees was introduced en masse after phylloxera devastated the Islandsvineyards in the late eighteenth century, especially in Mallorca and Ibiza. Their fruit can be sampled as is, toasted or as part of the islandstypical dishes, especially pastries. Almond products from the archipelago’s most important area are sold under the trusted brand name, “Ametla de Mallorca”. Furthermore, beauty products made with ingredients from this singular tree can also be found in perfumeries.
