Hello everyone, I introduce myself to the forum.
I’m Jose, I live in Villarrobledo, a town in the central plateau of Spain, located in the region of Castilla la Mancha.
My region belongs to the climate zone 8a, and I have a fantastic fruit orchard of about three hectares (about 7.5 acres), which I have been forming over more than 20 years.
My business is hospitality, and I am the owner of a hotel restaurant.
Because in my country the laws regarding wastewater discharges are very strict, and my business is located outside the town, more than 30 years ago we installed a wastewater treatment plant, which generates a large amount of water. , which I use ecologically to water the green filter trees.
Logically instead of planting poplars, I decided to plant fruit trees (it is my passion).
Initially I was unaware of the fruit world, so I made countless mistakes, so I started reading, participating in forums, interacting with technicians in the fruit sector, and breeders in my country, learning every day.
Until today, that I continue to maintain the same or greater passion than when I started.
I have a wonderful family, and two fantastic daughters, the oldest is finishing the college career of Electronic Industrial Engineering, and my little daughter wants to be an architect, so her father has no choice but to work a lot hahahahahaha.
In my orchard there are innumerable varieties of almost all fruit genera, except the varieties that need soil with low pH, since in my region the pH of the soil is very high, for which I cannot grow Kiwis, or chestnut trees for example. .
My collections are very extensive, covering many fruit genres (peaches, flat peaches, nectarines, flat nectarines, cling peaches, almond trees, plums, pluots, plumcots, apriums, apricots, cherries, persimmons, apples, pears, pure Asian pears and hybrids , pistachios, etc …).
I hope to contribute all my knowledge in this fantastic forum, and help everyone who needs it as much as possible.
So I send a very cordial greeting to all of you.
P.s .: Sorry if my English is not very good
