Turkmenbashi's Fruit Extravaganza
I must admit that there's something of an inside joke going on here, but this is still a crazy amount of trees to plant:
Turkmenistan Announces Tree Planting Initiative
Three million trees annually? Wow.
I'd be curious to know the state of fruit breeding in Turkmenistan. A fair amount of interesting work went on in the former Soviet Union, and many of the resulting cultivars are only now beginning to see the light of day here in the West. I don't know anything about Turkmenistan, though.
They do have a dictator who amuses me to no end by being a living caricature of the ridiculous Eastern dictator (Granted the amusement is tempered a bit by the fact that he's a brutal, horrible, despot.)
