Tropical and subtropical crops in Crete are a risk for every producer; however, they open new roads, especially if one connects these plants with tourism.
The avocado holds the scepter of these crops, since it seems that it has found its home in Chania.
However, interest in other crops is growing.
Guava, mango, passion fruit and lychee are but a few of the exotic fruits that can be found in Crete.
Due to the special microclimate that many of these plants require to grow, the areas in Europe that are considered suitable for their cultivation are very specific.
One of them is Crete and specifically Chania.
