Interesting story about urban peach orchards in Paris from the 1600s to the early 1900s: http://www.messynessychic.com/2014/03/04/the-last-peach-orchards-of-paris/

Beautiful photography! I'm inspired to try espalier this year.

Thank you, that was a very cool article. It made me wonder if pomegranates, olives, citrus or the semi-tropical group of figs could be grown like that in the Pacific Northwest...

There is also this place where they grow figs and it's even further north

Great find.

I'm growing Key Limes and other tropical plants in North Florida using a similar approach. South-facing walls are my best friends.

Definitely going to share this article on my blog. Thank you for posting.
