Global climate warming has its positive aspects. In particular, this applies to our gardens and orchards, where exotic fruits and vegetables are now often found.

"At the same time," writes SSPDaily, "although most of these plants feel good in a new place, it is advisable to choose those that adapt without problems, are not demanding to care for and give a plentiful harvest. Here are a few exotic plants that you can plant on the site, with the hope of seeing the results of your labor on the kitchen table in the near future."

Figs

Figs or fig trees are native to the Middle East and West Asia. These sturdy plants will add the spirit of the Mediterranean to your garden, and in a few years they will be able to please you with delicious and nutrient-rich fruits.

Tip: When planting figs in the ground, choose a warm, sheltered location with free draining soil.

Kiwi

Kiwi is a tropical fruit. This climbing, vine-like plant does well in moist, well-drained soil and is afraid of strong winds.

It takes about three to four years for a kiwi to bear fruit, but the leaves of these plants are also used in cooking and medicine.

Rambutan

Rambutan is an evergreen tree native to Malaysia and Indonesia, widely cultivated and eaten throughout Southeast Asia.

This edible fruit is closely related to lychee and longan and attracts attention with its bright red spiky fruit.

For healthy growth, the rambutan tree needs a lot of sun and moisture. And in hot and dry conditions, its slight moderate shading is welcome.

Kale

Kale is known for its success in treating diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Originally from the eastern part of the Mediterranean, kale is unpretentious and not afraid of cold weather. You can also grow this cabbage in pots if you provide it with enough light and regular watering.

Kale leaves are harvested when they reach a length of 15-20 cm.

Bilimbi

Bilimbi (cucumber tree) is native to Indonesia and Malaysia. For the first few months, the bilimbi fruit is bright green, but as it ripens, it becomes shiny, yellow and soft.

Bilimbi is usually harvested when it is still green, 3-4 months after flowering.

Important: These plants do not tolerate cold and like drained, moist soil.
