Mandarins are nowadays cultivated in all continents. Conversely, the variety “Chios mandarin” grows exclusively under very specific conditions that are optimally found on the island of Chios where mandarins were introduced in the 13th century following the Genoese colonization. The island of Chios, which is also known for the mastic tree, has calcium-rich soil that is based on limestone. The stable temperatures and the Meltemi winds give a mild microclimate that protects the fruits from frost during the winter months.
