    Genus of 2 species of evergreen shrubs and trees, native to the woods and rocky places of the Azores, Canary Islands and Mediterranean regions. Laurus nobilis is a shrub or small evergreen tree up to 12-15 m tall, with a conical shape and compact foliage. Aromatic leaves, lanceolate or strictly ovate, with wavy edges, shiny, usually dark green in color. In spring, greenish yellow flowers appear, collected in bunches, followed by black berries on the female plants. The leaves are widely used in cooking to flavor and soften foods.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to any type of soil, as long as it is well drained, preferring fresh, fertile soil with a good organic substance content. During the dry season it benefits from regular watering, although it can tolerate drought for short periods. It is moderately cold resistant -7°/-9°c.

    Sowing

    From autumn to early winter. The seeds are recalcitrant: they cannot be stored for a long time, they quickly lose germination. They should be sown immediately after receiving them. Remove fruit pulp before planting. Germination occurs in spring.
