We have done a few day trips out to the more rural areas and the coast here and one of the things we have been amazed by is the variety of things that grow here in Chile. Everything seems to grow here. Here is a list of what we have been able to identify growing here:
potatoes.....the list just keeps going. And everything is 2 times the size of the produce in the US. NO joke. The soil is practically black it is so rich.
