The Subtropical Greenhouse is similar in specialization to the Tropical Greenhouse but with a different range of species. A collection of 40 crop species are grown there. These species require low temperatures in winter. The main species found in the Subtropical Greenhouse are citrus species and less well-known crop species. These plants regularly come into blossom and bear fruit (fig trees, pomegranates, loquats, kiwi, persimmon, etc.). The collection is complemented by tea plants, pistachios, macadamia trees, olive trees, laurel trees and many other species of subtropical crops. This greenhouse is also open to the public.
