Citrus Fruit

One of the most impressive sights for the visitor crossing the plain from Hania to the area around the Keritis River Valley is that of the numerous orange, tangerine and lemon groves which are at their best in spring, giving off their sweet, intoxicating aroma .

The many white little blossoms in spring with their delicate aroma as well as the bright colours of the fruit in winter are a sight for sore eyes . The consumption of citrus fruit juices provides vitamin C and other important elements ensuring fitness and healthy body function.

There is no doubt why this fruit is consumed in such quantities by the locals but also why it is a favourite for markets and consumers abroad.
