Aloe Vera

Climate zone: TropicalDry – Temperate – Continental – Polar 

You have probably seen the name ‘Aloe Vera’ when walking through your local drug store. This plant has made a name for itself through its medicinal properties and is now marketed in many cosmetics and health products. It originates from the Arabian Peninsula and grows best in warm and tropical or dry climates. Aloe Vera is a perennial – it does not have to be replanted every year. In agroforestry systems, it has proven to show increased growth rates and higher yields.

Crop Combinations

While a number of plants work out well, when planted alongside aloe vera, some of the more common plants included: borage, scented geraniums, any plant from the onion family, sow thistle, balm of gilead, elderberry.


Aloe vera, which is still a hugely common ingredient in cosmetics and lotions, has gradually made its way into the food, beverage, and supplement markets.
