Gardens of La Palomera
Hugo Galué's Garden

Hugo and his family have lived in Baruta for 60 years. The house is located in the Santo Domingo sector and is adjacent to the extension of Paez street. On the land where Mr. Hugo plants, there are still avocado trees that were there before he came to build his house. Almost all the seeds he plants are given away. He harvests edible species such as ocumo, avocado, lechosa, mango, loquat, orange, paprika, strawberry, soursop and mandarin. Hugo comments that "the avocados are formidable". Medicinal species also grow: lemon balm, malojillo, oregano orejón, aloe, flor escondida, and sangria. In the public garden outside his house, he doesn't plant edible species because he says people tend to take the fruits.
