CAIRO, June 17 (Xinhua) -- In Egypt, grape growers are busy picking grapes during the harvest season begins in May and ends in September. Grapes are one of the most widely grown fruit crops across the North African country, second only to citrus.

Egypt has in recent years witnessed a notable increase in growing and exporting table grapes as the global demand for its high-quality fruit has been rising. However, according to local grape farmers, this year's export of Egyptian grapes has declined due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
