‘Mejhoul’ dates cultivation in Morocco

M.A. Elhoumaizi
Native to Morocco the ‘Mejhoul’ cultivar is one of the most important date cultivars around the world. It is commonly known as the queen of dates, which offer the best value in the market. In this paper we presented the origin, importance and the future of the ‘Mejhoul’ cultivar in Morocco. The ‘Mejhoul’ cultivar is extensively planted in various Moroccan oases (old and new plantation), due to its great ability to adapt. Morocco is expecting the production of 70,000 t of ‘Mejhoul’ dates, to be presented in the national and international markets, by 2030.
