Fete de la Bigarade - La Caunette

La Bigarade is the Seville Orange. You can buy citrus plants and fresh seville oranges (for home-made marmalade lovers), and lots of indoor, outdoor, and exotic plants, including a big display of orchids. It's the next village to Minerve.

A few years back I had a nice mandarin tree at barrel n° 2 (now no longer mine alas)

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
