A Merry Christmas: Frankincense grows again in the Holy Land!

OK, so despite last year's post about frankincense being in endangered (which I retweeted this morning), I just found from a friend at Kibbutz Ketura that one amazing scientist in Israel has managed to sprout frankincense in the Holy Land for the first time about 1500 years!
In Dr Solowey’s nursery at Kibbutz Ketura

Dr. Elaine Solowey, the same scientist who germinated the 2000 year-old Methuselah date palm, is at it again, this time with frankincense, myrrh and balm of Gilead. She's growing an entire crop of biblical plants, and finding amazing uses for them. Read about it here.
