The areas around Guzelyurt/Morphou and Lefke/Lefka have for many years been known as the fruit basket of Cyprus, and it is a predominantly agricultural area. This great, green fertile expanse of land produces an abundance of citrus in all its many varieties; as well as soft fruits such as peaches and nectarines, apricots, strawberries, melons and dates, there are nuts; walnuts, almonds and pecans, and vegetables; peas, green beans, aubergines, okra, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and of course potatoes for which Cyprus is famous. All these crops are irrigated by the mineral rich waters from the springs that rise in the Troodos Mountains.
