Oasis in the Empty Quarter – Al-Ahsa – Date Palms

The Al-Ahsa oasis is the greenest area in Eastern Saudi Arabia with millions of palm trees and freshwater springs. Oases are fertile areas in the desert with water where plants and trees can grow. Nomads wandering the desert may stop temporarily to establish themselves and forage for dates – a sweet fruit produced by the palm tree. Often after fasting for Ramadan, Islamic people eat dates to break their fast. Dates are very sweet and contain natural sugars.
