The most famous crop of the area of Leonidio is the Tsakonian eggplant - a long, purple-lilac variety with white stripes, which has been awarded a Protected Designation of Origin status. The Tsakonian eggplant is a marvelous vegetable. It is sweet and does not need to be salted before cooking, a technique used with other varieties to draw out their bitter juices. Not only is it pretty to look at, but its flesh has a velvety texture and is very tender too.

However, apart from the various dishes made with eggplant, visitors in Leonidion can also try a Tsakonian type of cheese called simpoukoukira made of thmilk cream without butter.

What's more, Leonidio boasts a great selection of shops selling fresh herbs from the slopes of Mount Parnon, such as tea, oregon an many more.
