Description

Hanami is a japanese custom that consists of contemplating the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms, accompanied by the people you love most, your family.

It is also a point of reference for the Pifarré Farm, in collaboration with Nomon Cultural and Tourism of Lleida, to share the knowledge of pear cultivation in Horta de Lleida and Terres de Ponent.

At the end of March and beginning of April, it is offered the Hanami Horta activity, where you will learn more about the origins of this sweet fruit while visiting a field of flowering pear trees at the Torre del Fugó estate, located next to the Pifarré Farm. The pear trees flowering is very attractive due to its nuclear and intense white flower.

An experience that combines agricultural culture and tasting of local products at Horta of Lleida.

Program

The activity, this year scheduled for the first weekend of April, will begin at the Pifarré Farm agromuseum where the origins of the pear in the Terres de Ponent will be detailed.

There you can also see old tools such as typical wooden benches, harvesting meters, old reed baskets for picking fruit, as well as an old magazine from 1955 where the Horta of Lleida is presented as "The Mecca of fruit".

Then, the pear field will be visited while explaining curiosities about the cultivation such as the production process, maintenance and the optimal time to pick the fruit. 

To finish, they offer a tasting of the conference pear, the most well-known variety and one of the sweetest that is part of the PDO Pera de Lleida.
