Koronian Variety

The Koronian variety (Olea Europea var.microcarpa alba or var. Mastoides) is also known as Koronia, Koroni, Cretan among others, and is one of the most widespread kinds of olives. It has two important advantages: its resistance to drought (it can withstand hunger, thirst and strong winds), as well as its high and steady fruition. It is a variety with fairly small fruits, without any particular demands as far as the soil or the climate is concerned. It is considered the queen of the Greek varieties of olives as it is a product of systematic cultivation even from the times of the Minoan Crete. It blooms during the second half of April and it matures during October-December. The supremacy of the Koronian variety in Sitia is due to a lot of reasons: the climate conditions, the soil elements, the particular care from the olive farmers and the cold pressing of the olives that is considered ideal and allows the olive oil to preserve its miraculous ingredients.
