Magic mushroom or Magic island?

A taste so rare and so great

Rare Cretan mushroom

If for once you leave the comfort of your amazing Cretan villa and navigate in the mainland, great surprises are waiting you there.

And if you are lucky enough to choose the correct traditional tavern...and you are lucky enough to be the right moment to the right place, then you may admire and enjoy the jewel of the humble Carob tree.

It is an extra rare mushroom called Haroupolahano or Skarolahano that grows on the trunk of the Carob tree during summer. It's taste is extraordinary and surely unforgettable.

The locals, if they found it at an early stage, they water it with wine in order to grow faster. The tree where it grows on, usually dies in a few years.
