Blossom Peach Trees
‘’Color couldn’t exist without someone watching it’’
The view, which is especially beautiful from the foothills of Mount Vermio, is on par with or better than any other springtime floral show anywhere on the planet. The Peachtree, in eastern traditions, is considered to be “the Tree of Life of the Earthly Paradise” providing people with life and joy. Peach blossoms symbolize spring, rebirth, and as result fertility. It also has inspired great painters such as Vincent Van Gogh. Motivated by the unique pink color of the fertile plain of Naoussa, a great team of farmers, children, dancers and carriers ,created an amazing video ,last March,to promote the unique phenomenon of Blooming Peach Trees and all the people who contribute to this spectacle, every year. The song Jerusalema was ideal, as it has united the whole world creating positive emotions, and has been described as the song of the pandemic.
Imathia's peaches are famous throughout Europe. They are one of Greece's most successful export items, and the agricultural business in the region employs thousands of people,trying and struggling every year to reach this unique taste of Greece everywhere.
Northern Greece's peach blooms ,bloom for around fifteen days, and the lovely event takes place between late February and mid-March. This March the phenomenon will take place between 15-30 March.
