Saudi Arabia set to expand dragon fruit production

Saudi Arabia plans to increase dragon fruit production, as it is a highly prized commodity and uses less water than other agricultural crops. The announcement was made at a workshop hosted by the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture.

Dr. Rahma Nasser Jeries, a researcher at the Ministry, said the production of dragon fruit would be the first of several crops to be produced locally. It forms part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 to expand non-oil industries. Jeries presented a paper, “A study on the growth and productivity of the dragon fruit under three environmental conditions,” that showed the dragon fruit has become one of the world’s most expensive foods.
