Tropical Fruits at PermaTree in Amazonas Region of Ecuador

Tropical Fruits at finca PermaTree at the edge of the amazonas region in Ecuador, South America. We are between the warm tropical / subtropical lowlands and the cool sierra region.

We are growing a extreme diverse mix of common tropical fruit with native species to Ecuador and Latin America, as well as many new varieties from the Asian continent with similar tropical climate. Our goal is to have food forest with a vast variety of tasty, healthy fruits.

Fruit Forest

Our goal with finca PermaTree here, is to grow all of the existing possible exotic fruits of the planet in one place. Just because we can. And maybe because we the humans are ending natural diversity and this is a growing future issue for the next generations of humans on the planet. We are not here to save the planet or whatever… The planet does not need us. WE need the planet earth.
