Fruits of the land

We recommend you try the juicy oranges, red grapefruits, sweet lemons and kumquats (referred to locally as maliki). At AlWadi Farm, near Winter Park, you can take a tour with a local farmer and pick your own fruits. Plus, there’s an on-site restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The farm is open from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 8pm from September to May, and from 5pm to 10pm from June to August.

The plentiful supply of water from the oasis has allowed plants and crops to flourish in AlUla, producing ample harvests of barley, wheat, oat, figs, olives, citrus fruits, herbs and, of course, dates. Numerous varieties of the date fruit are grown here, the most famous of which is the sweet and sticky, yet highly nourishing barni date. Citrus fruits are also bountiful – there are 29 varieties in total.
