"Anydra" Products

Santorini is well known for some peculiar agricultural products, called “anydra” (= without water), since rain is scarce.
The plantations have adapted in this microclimate by absorbing the humidity coming from the atmosphere and the clouds that is trapped inside the pumice stone. Without a lot of water, the products remain small in size, such as the local cherry tomatoes, the watermelons or the cucumbers.
You can find the delicious local products in fine restaurants and shops.
