Ancient Greeks grow only the crops that could adapt to the environment since the Mediterranean climate is very mild. Although, they literally have four seasons – winter, spring, summer and autumn amd their weather makes it feel like there are only two seasons either which is really dry and hot long summer or a very mild winter.

So, Ancient Greeks want to make the most out of the crops they can grow and use and sell it, since crop failure was a regular problem for them. The three most widely planted crops are: emmer (triticum dicoccum), durum (triticum durum) and hulled barley (hordeum vulgare), but broad beans, lentils, chickpeas, vines, figs, apples, pomegranates, pears, medlars, quinces, cucumbers, garlic, salads, onions, walnuts and almonds were also grown by Ancient Greeks.
