HOME FARMS FRUIT Fruit thrives in the Greek sun and it is impossible to draw up a list of what grows where and in what conditions. As a rule, lemons (a prominent ingredient in most dishes), grow in the valleys alongside oranges, bergamots and limes. Figs, pears, quince, pomegranates, apricots and nectarines flourish in the mountains where villagers graft stems with leaf buds onto the rootstock of trees. This requires a lot of skill and practice. On sale at local markets will be more exotic fruits like avocados and prickly pears which should come with a health warning!
