Beautiful pictures, thank you for sharing. It looks like the yard is going to turn into a jungle in a couple years. Btw, are you growing any Jujubes? Also where are the pomegranates!!  ;D

Love the Ewais mango, nice thick trunk!
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Yeah, I have heard that the suckers can be quite annoying on Jujubes. However to have excellent tasting sweet fruit its a good trade off.I have heard about low frequency of suckering varieties that can be grafted onto. I am growing 4 varieties of Jujubes right now, I love the taste of the fruit. I am able to control them though with containers.

Are you growing any berries? Blueberries, Blackberries, raspberries, etc?

If not, I would look into getting a boysenberry plant. Boysenberry seems to be one of the most drought tolerant and low humidity tolerant berries I am growing. However, the berry is highly invasive... its worth it because the berries are some of the best!

I think container growing is the best for jujubes ,, totally annoying ,, although i regret removing these 2 trees now ,, but its done ,,

And no i dont grow any berries ,, infact i wish and i did once try and bought a " heritage "raspberry plant from burpee ,, it grew at the winter and died at the beginning of the summer lol ,, maybe it didnt believe where is the winter and where is the summer ,,

Now i am trying to grow mysore raspberry seeds and will see what will goes ,, and i wish i would try that "boysenberry" i just googled it and it seems great to me ,, its grown in california and i think we have the same temperature patern ,, maybe you tell me where to get plants or seeds or whatever is the way of propagation ,,

Its usually grown from divisions/cuttings. Raspberries will die every time when the heat comes in. However there is a Raspberry that was selected in Southern California which has great heat tolerance, its called Bababerry. You should be able to find a source for Boysenberry which will ship to you in Egypt.

Amrk,

Here is a source for boysenberry from Ebay which states that they ship worldwide;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Large-Boysenberry-Plants-Vines-Grow-Your-Own-Fresh-Boysenberries-/261012323261?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc58bfbbd#ht_7081wt_887

Here is a picture of boysenberry flowering and fruiting in the garden. Its very invasive climbing into other containers and rooting into the ground. However its going to reward me with over +100 berries this year :).

Amr,

Pics look great. Thanks for posting.

Your Zebda mango looks very similar to my Father in Laws. 

Have you thought of Mulberry ?  I prefer them to all the other berries ..  They seem easy to grow as well .

I own already 2 pakistan mulberries and one sold to me as an " indian " its short and thick ,, in egypt white and black regular mulberries are grown everywhere in the streets and pavements ,, so its not attractive ,, and it attracts lots of flies and kids throwing stones at the tree to have some mulberries :D

The original boysenberry was selected in inland Orange County, CA. I suggest the thorny version, just because I have heard the production of berries is higher. The heat tolerance may be better with the thorny version as well. Summer temps trend in the 80s low 90s most of the summer (Orange County). The berry is highly adaptable to warm climates, there are many people over in Arizona growing it with temps in the summer trending in the 100-110s. Both thorny and non thorny versions should perform well for you.

If you come to Los Angeles,CA area anytime. I can share some boysenberry cuttings/and rooted plants with you. Cuttings root reliably and the cuttings are hardy.

Thanks happyisland ,, in fact you should ,, claims that trees needs space and light and extra ,, are for long term growers or commercial growers ,, who need the maximum out of a tree plus the ease of collection and care ,, otherwise i would be happy to own 100 trees with one different fruit per tree than one tree with 100 fruits ,,

nullzero your plant looks amazing ,, i am certainly growing to bring at least 1 plant with me ,, glad that you told me about it ,,

I have boysenberries with thorns that grow and fruit well for me, it is currently covered in small green fruits.  During the summer, 100F are the cool days here. :o So I'd guess no problem in Egypt.

Figs more than thrive ,, i did relocate these 2 trees 2 or 3 times ,, and i did remove one large tree which used to produce green figs with red interior ,, i didnt like it and it grows massively although i kept on pruning it ,, i intend on bringing a certain variety that grows best in the northern coast in Egypt ,, purple brown large and super super sweet ,, but i am afraid that it may need more humidity or sea breeze than where i am located in cairo suburbs ,,

Amr,

I have a great collection of fruiting cactus as well. Over 14 Opuntia sp. now most selected for fruit quality or vegetable pads. So I can give you pads of those as well. Have a couple Dragon Fruit varieties too. Been working on trying to amass a collection of worthy arid land fruits and vegetables.

Your should trial them out and see what works in your location!

Thanks for the pics...they sure look tasty ;D ;D ;D

Good to hear from you, Amr old buddy!  All the trees and shrubs and plants look great.
Soon, a true oasis in Cairo...you do have the green thumb. By the way, what is the coldest
your winter's would get???

When you come to L.A., a side trip to Palm Springs would be about a 2 hour drive, but you are
welcome to come see my place as well.  Not sure if any mangos will be ripe by then - so far
August is the eariliest I've had them ripen...

But it will be guaranteed to be 105-112 degrees then...but of course, it's a "dry" heat.....lololololol.......

Amr, I visited Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh when I graduated law school (May 2000). Had an amazing time. Sharm had the best snorkeling Ive ever seen and crossing the road by Tahir square was a major adventure. and i loved the local dish in cairo- forgot whats its called but its rice and lentil with fried onions and garlic sauce. or something like that.
and boy, i'll never forget how humid it is inside the pyramids.
anyway, if you want me to show you around china town in NY when you are in town, send me a private message- there should be tons of great tropical fruit available- lychees, longans, mangosteen, rambutan, jakfruit, etc

Thanks natsgarden ,, currently no ,, i used to have 2 palms " barhee and medjool " but both died due to a lousy worm disease intruded from saudi arabia few years ago that harmed large amount of date cultivation in egypt ,, now i will try my luck again with the same types as they are considered the best to me ,,

Maybe red palm weevil? Larvae enters core of the palm and eats it.

Amr, I visited Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh when I graduated law school (May 2000). Had an amazing time. Sharm had the best snorkeling Ive ever seen and crossing the road by Tahir square was a major adventure. and i loved the local dish in cairo- forgot whats its called but its rice and lentil with fried onions and garlic sauce. or something like that.
and boy, i'll never forget how humid it is inside the pyramids.
anyway, if you want me to show you around china town in NY when you are in town, send me a private message- there should be tons of great tropical fruit available- lychees, longans, mangosteen, rambutan, jakfruit, etc

Thanks lycheeluva for your invite ,, the plate's name is " koshari " ,, and wat a chance that am eating it right now ,, loool ,, gr8 u loved sharm el sheikh snorkling ,, its the best and i love it ,, 

I am waiting to see such fruits in chinatown ,, i have been to NY several times but never visited chinatown as i never though it will have such tropical fruits ,, i would love to carefully examine ( eat ) each of them :D

Going by google maps you are just on the edge of the Nile Delta....which shows up very green on the satellite view. Good going!!! It seems to me some your irrigation is being done old style.

If I was visiting New York's Chinatown I would head over to Katz's for a knockwurst with 'kraut. They are all beef knockwurst no pork.
But maybe you guys would like to eat at this place in Astoria
Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern at Kabab Cafe, Astoria, Queens

Regarding irrigation ,, i am nt using drip i use normal "open the hose and leave it beside each tree for some time ' ,, commercial farms are using it as they are located in the new reclaimed land in the desert mainly ,, majority of lands uses flood irrigation ,,

And i would like to try this sausage ,, i always wanted to try german sausage but i wanted it beef ,, i will give it a shot ,,

Amr- end of may and all of June is peak tropical fruit season in NY. You are in luck. and I will probably have quite a few non tropical fruits ripening in july in my garden.
also  i am an attorney, so if you need help help with the bar or finding  ajob, let me know

Hey LL, does that apply for my daughter as well? She's graduating Law School next Sunday!
