THE CHÂTEAU WITH THE FIRST ORANGE TREES IN FRANCE.
The 160 trees are between 10 and 100 years old, and they come in 60 varieties (Buddha's hand, red lemon, kaffir lime, Moro blood-orange trees, finger lime, lumia, orange trees, etc.) found in the greenhouse and the Royal Orangery.
Dom Pacello used citrus-grafting techniques, which sometimes led to unusual species!
He found the French plum too bitter, so he grew the "Reine Claude" variety in honour of the wife of François I.
