Greece: Cold snap hits orange orchards in Peloponnese

In Argolida, in the northern Peloponnese, last Saturday there were icicles hanging off oranges in an orchard following a cold snap. After plunging to -4 degrees Celsius in the Argos Plain on Friday night, temperatures rose slightly over the weekend. It was unclear whether a series of cold snaps will create problems for citrus fruit harvests in the region.

According to an article on ekathimerini.com, the cold weather has certainly damaged vegetable crops, according to farmers. Temperatures are expected to return to normal seasonal levels this week following several days of severe cold and frost.
