016: Omani Roses
Every spring something special happens on the green mountain. The roses start to bloom, and the farmers descend upon their fields to collect their fragile fruit. I knew roses are grown for making rose water on Jebal Akhdar, but that's about all I knew until I decided to investigate for myself with my microphone. What I discovered is a traditional, dainty, craft with many limiting factors. What wasn't limiting was the knowledge given to me by my new friends, the rose farmers I met in the village of al Ain. Join me as Yahir al Riyami and Nasser al Riyami tell me all about the Omani Roses.
