Manaki is the common variety of north-eastern Peloponnese. This olive variety ripens later, its harvest begins from mid November to early January. The fruit has a medium size in an oval shape. The weight varies between 2.2 and 2.9 grams. What distinguishes the Manaki tree is that it also thrives at high altitudes, where other varieties do not normally yield. It has a high resistance to strong winds and cold.
The taste of olive oil that comes from this fruit is milder and its strong aroma reminds ripe fruits like apple, tomatoes and sometimes almonds. Extremely tasteful it is the best choice for salads and has fanatic friends. This variety is used for the production of olive oil of excellent quality but also inlaid as whole fruit at the dining table. Manaki is almost exclusively found in the Peloponnese.
