FRUTICETUM – Fruit Gardens

The Fruit Garden, FRUTICETUM, is located in the region of Western Uusimaa, in the lush country-side of the Lohja Island.

FRUTICETUM is an exhibition garden, where all woody fruit and berry plant species that grow in Finland are exhibited.

The purpose of the garden is to show fully grown and productive trees and bushes to people who want to try to grow these plants in their own gardens.

So far, almost 300 varieties of apples have been planted in the garden. Among these you will find the local varieties grown in Lohja, old traditional species and newer ones, all arranged in separate groups of trees. We also exhibit varieties which are resistant to apple scab. We have planted 45 varieties of pear trees, 60 varieties of plum trees, around 40 different varieties of sweet and sour cherries and more than 20 varieties crab apples.

The garden also contains a good selection of currants and gooseberries as well as bush blueber-ries, Japanese quince, sea buckthorn, sweet mountain ash, saskatoon, honeysuckle, grapes etc. We are also trying some species which are new to our region, like apricots, elderberries and mulber-ries.

All species are planted in their own groups and marked with name signs. All together you can admire almost 2000 trees and bushes of fruit and berries that are able to sur-vive in our harsh climate.

We arrange plant exhibitions and tastings.

We take groups of minimum ten persons for guided tours in the garden.

There is a small café in the garden.

May-September, see our website and media announcement
