Stretching out an astonishing 40,000 acres, a palm tree farm is under development in Toshka, the largest farm in Egypt and soon to be home to the biggest palm tree farm in the world.


Egyptian dates are in high demand in international markets and Toshka’s palm tree farm - situated in South Valley in Aswan - is set to provide Egypt’s finest dates to the world, adding to Egypt's overall count of 3.6 million palm trees.


The fruit seems to be having a good spell, with preparations underway for the International Dates Festival in Aswan. The festival - set to take place in October - will bring together suppliers, exporters, farmers, date factories, exhibitors from all over the MENA region, as well as everyone involved in the production process of the sought-after product, with a set of cultural activities, folk performances, and a bazaar showcasing handicrafts and palm-inspired products.
