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 ,,

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

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

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

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!
