Kojsko / Goriška Brda / Slovenia

In 2010, after a longitudinal research on local fruit varieties, a gene bank orchard was planted in the village of Kojsko.
More than 120 different fruit varieties are cultivated, from which 68 endemic or traditional varieties from the borderline area between Slovenia and Italy. The description of local varieties and the specific stories connected with them are collected in the book "Fruit of the sun" (Sadje sonca), published in 2014. 

Visits to the orchard are possible by appointment.
