Egypt is one of the world’s leading orange producers and exporters. Egyptian orange production is favored by high yields due to the availability of irrigation water (the Nile), suitable climatic conditions (good soil and year-round sunshine leading to high yields and quality), low labor costs, an early harvest compared to other major producers in the region, and Egypt’s proximity to major importing countries. These unique characteristics make Egypt one of the world’s top ten orange producers and exporters. Egypt has different varieties of oranges that grow along the Delta Region and the Nile. The main varieties are:
