The economy of Crete is based on services and tourism. However,
agriculture and stock breeding also plays an important role and Crete
is one of the few Greek islands that can support itself independently.

groves are significant; oranges and citrons are also cultivated.
Many residents cultivate out of season vegetables in greenhouses.
