Abstract (English)
A fruit tree has always been a determinant of an ornamental garden shaping in Croatia. From the 13th century onward an organized planting of fruit trees has been recorded. A total of 100 gardens in Istria have been analysed, 50 of which were examined in the Istria interior, and 50 in the coastal area. Due to the shape and architectural style, 8 different types of gardens were determined and classified, by the location, into three climatic-relief areas A, B and C. There were 7 types of ornamental gardens with a fruit tree as a primary determinant of the garden, except one without it. Out of the 23 recorded fruit tree species, Prunus avium (L.) L., sweet cherry, Ficus carica L., fig tree, Vitis vinifera L. vine and Olea europeaea L., olive tree and vine have been the most commonly used in the Istria interior whereas olive trees, Eriobotrya japonica (Thunb.) Lindl., Japanese loquat, fig trees and vine have been known in the Istria coast
