In Ancient Greece they called raisin (stafida) the dried fruit of "stafidampelos" and the raisin itself "stafidampelo". Raisins accompanied the wine in symposiums and were also used in cooking and sweets. In the Byzantine times they continued to use it for cooking but also large quantities were consumed by the Christians during the Lent. It was the Venetians who started the production of raisins first in the Peloponnese and later in the islands of the Ionian Sea.
The systematic cultivation of black currant started in the mid 14th century first in Northwestern Peloponnese (Corinthia, Ilia, Achaia) and later in the early 16th century it spread to the islands of the Ionian Sea (Cephalonia, Zakynthos). In the early 19th century raisins are the top export product of Zakynthos to Europe while in Peloponnese, war and destruction suspended its production.
