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.
