Hebrew and Arabic media are reporting that, for the first time, Morocco is exporting etrogim (citrons used during the upcoming holiday of Sukkot) to Israel.

According to some experts, the etrogim grown on Mount Atlas in Morocco are the closest one to the biblical "פרי עץ הדר" mentioned in the Torah. Spanish Jews prefer to use this strain of etrog.

The first shipment of 1500 etrogim have arrived, and apparently more are coming.

Also, there is no shortage of lulavim (palm fronds) also used for the holiday as there were last year, when Israel had to import them from Jordan. The entire supply of between 600,000 and 700,000 lulavim is being grown domestically this year.

Last year, Gaza farmers lost $1 million when Hamas forbade export of palm fronds to Israel.
