Bring Fruit Seeds to Eritrea
Fruit Trees For Desert Climates - Eritrea
Among the best varieties for our hot, dry climate are plums, pomegranates, peaches, apricots and figs — they all grow beautifully in Eritrea.
Few years ago when we visited Sawa, we planted lemon tree about 3000. We only planted lemon tree. Why didn’t we mix it with plums, pomegranates, peaches and apricots and figs? . The best variety to plant is the ‘Wonderful’. Pomegranates can take all day sun and will grow in alkaline soil. Even better, they do not need a lot of watering.
Every year a lot of Eritrean (Beles) will come to Eritrea. Why isn’t our government do not request the visitor to bring with them some seeds from around the world. This can become a habit for our visitors. In the long term this can become a culture to bring something with us for Eritrea.
This can be handle it by our Agriculture Department of Eritrea at the airport. Next year we can request pencil and pen by Education Department and so on. The question is what can bring for donation when we come visit to Eritrea.We can open tutoring classes during the summer for math, English, music, etc. We need to be productive while we are in Eritrea. It shouldn’t be just eating, sleeping and having fun.
Recently, I was watching youtube about Air Layering and tree grafting method how you can basically multiply one tree into one hundred by Air layering of plants. Air layering is a method of propagating new trees and shrubs from stems still attached to the parent plant. The stem is wrapped with damp moss to encourage roots to form and the Grafting technique is two separate plants are made to unite by tightly pressing the cut side surfaces of the stems.
This summer a lot of Beles will come visit Eritrea from around the world. Please bring with you seeds this year. Let us be productive and open tutoring classes. Let’s think ahead.
