The inhabitants of Siwa Oasis have been growing date palms for over 3,000 years. Siwan dates are of exceptional quality and taste which has been praised since Pharaonic times. It also explains why the oasis's ancient Egyptian name was Sekht-am, meaning “palm land.”
Nothing from the palms goes to waste. Fronds are used for brooms, beds, boxes, and other types of furniture, while the trunk itself is used in roofing and structural supports for houses.
We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions.
