Adam Tuchinsky asked:

The Kollel replies:

Ginosar is a region on the northwestern corner on the Kineret Lake, in the territory allocated to Naftali. In Chazal, the Kineret is referred to as Yam Ginosar, (see Megilah 6a). Josephus mentions that this region was unique and produced fruits nine months of the year. (There is a modern day kibbutz in the area, named Ginosar.)

The area still produces fruit, but with modern methods of irrigation and agriculture available in other regions, Ginosar doesn't seem to have any major advantage over other areas.
