DAMASKINOELIA - ORCHAS OLIVE
The variety "DAMASKINOELIA" - "ORCHAS OLIVE" is revival of a very old (ancient?) Greek olive.

There is a view that is a descendant of the ancient Greek variety Orchas or Orchemon. The variety is listed by G.Tavanti (1891) (as Archemora).

This identification is probable mainly because of the similarity of the fruit of "Damaskinoelia" which is similar to the testicle in shape and size, as there is not another olive fruit to present it convincingly.

The tree is found sporadically among other trees with cultivated varieties, almost all over Greece. The systematic cultivation began in Argolis-Arcadia area (Astros).

This is the tree that produces the largest olive fruit size, often exceeding 20 gr and is known mainly by the name Gaidourelia. The total production is estimated at 1500-1800 tonnes yearly.

It is believed that the same tree grown in the region Puglia (Apulia), Italy named Bella di Spagna or Cerignola and it does not exist in Spain (G.Kostelenos). Comes from the Latin name of the botanical classification Olea europea var. major macrocarpa.

Also we can produce excellent olive oil, something perhaps unique among ordinary table olive varietie.
