The Citrus Garden of the “Palais de Carnolès”

Surrounding the once summer residence of the Princes of Monaco, the garden of the “Palais Carnolès” contain the largest citrus fruit collection in Europe.

The town’s Gardens Department wants to promote local botanical heritage, drawing special attention to the citrus collection at the Palais de Carnolès: “It’s very interesting from both a botanical and a protectionist point of view, consisting of over 100 different varieties of fruit : 11 different kinds of lemon, 6 of citron, 20 of orange and 8 of lime, as well as manderines, clementines, kumquats, bergamots, Seville oranges, grapefruits, and pomelos, spread out over 340 trees.

Such biodiversity has led the Palais de Carnolès’ citrus collection to be recongised by the CCVS (Conservatory of Specialized Vegetable Collections — “collection agréée”) and the Ministry of Culture (“Jardin Remarquable”).”

From 2009, the garden maintenance team is experimenting with a method of associating mycorrhiza with citrus fruit trees, which have been weakened by several years of drought.

This natural method, which uses mushrooms, promotes the development of the root system, enabling the tree to better absorb nutrients and water and to resist bacterial and cryptogamic attack.
