Peaches

Greek Peach also named “Rodakino”

..a sun-kissed greeting from the Greek Summer

 

greek peache

There is nothing like a Greek peach - also called in Greece “Rodakino”! The sunny climate of Greece is ideal for peach production and around 20 varieties of peaches are cultivated, mainly in the northern region of Macedonia.

Yellow-fleshed, white-fleshed, clingstone and freestone, peaches come in many shapes, or hues but all of them have a bright colour with a particular taste-aroma. They are medium to large in size and are suitable for transport. Nectarines arrived later and gained commercial importance among growers from the 1970s onwards.

Greek peaches are canned at peak freshness by state-of-the-art processors. In addition to sliced or halved peaches in syrup, products include juices, purees and frozen peaches. The main varieties used for canning and freezing are Katerina, Loadel and Andros.
