On our way out to Colorado this summer, we stayed at a very nice hotel in Taos called the El Monte Sagrado Hotel.
The grounds of this hotel are beautifully landscaped. As an added bonus, the grounds contain an edible landscape of fruiting trees.
As you walk on the paths throughout the grounds, you see a lovely landscape of native plants.
But as you closely approach the various trees scattered throughout the grounds, you notice that they are all edible fruit trees.
Several varieties of apple trees were filled with nicely shaped apples
There were also a number of pear trees that had not been thinned and were overwhelmed with small pears.
In the photo below, you can see a nicely shaped Russian Olive that had small, immature fruit on it.
There were several small trees with dainty red, cherry-like berries on them. I am not entirely sure what these were; however, I strongly suspect that they are Juneberries, also known as saskatoons. It was too late in the year for them to be cherries.
There were also one or two peach trees that were also filled with fruit.
I was impressed with how well taken care of all the trees were. There was no sign of pest or leaf damage on any of the trees. The fruit was also in beautiful condition.
