From the early days up to the present, date farming have been an integral part in the way of life in this region, providing sustenance and wealth to the Emiratis and job to some of the expatriates. It is indeed a fact that date palms are considered as one of the highly priced commodity in this region.
This photo was taken a couple of days ago during our early morning photowalk at Al Ain Oasis which is located in the heart of the city. We grabbed the opportunity to talk to some of the farmers when we saw some of them were harvesting date fruits. We've found out that date fruits are sorted out according to the quality. Low quality date fruits can be used as feeds for goats.
