The steep, wooded mountains of Seychelles' inner islands provide only limited scope for large scale agricultural practices, but local farmers have learned how to make the best of the country's long hours of sunshine and plentiful rainfall to grow a wide variety of both tropical and more traditional fruits and vegetables.
High value, luxury food stuffs, such as premium quality tropical fruits and spices, grown to the highest environmental standards and marketed with the cache of Seychelles' exclusivity, are already fetching high prices in European supermarkets.
In order to meet their clients' demands for a ready supply of high quality, fresh fruit and vegetables, a number of privately-owned island resorts have invested heavily into agricultural projects on the islands, with some of the best results achieved using low-input, high-yielding hydroponics techniques.
