Fruits, Fruits, Fruits

How great it is, when the whole Rhone valley is full of fruits. Everywhere are fully loaded trees, showing apples, pears, plums and the famous Valais apricots in the most shining colours.

It is simply unbelievable how full the trees are hanging. Sometimes you have to be afraid that the branches are breaking under the weight of fruits hanging.

No wonder, the mild climate and the many sunshine days are almost perfect conditions for the fruits to growth.

Because of that climate the people in the Rhone valley were building waterchannels (Bisses) already centurys ago, to get the precious water down the mountains into their gardens.
