Motza is first mentioned in the Talmud (Tractate Succah) as the place where residents of Jerusalem used to cut their willow branches as one of the four species of fruits and plants required for the Festival of Sukkot.

Motza was rediscovered in 1860, when Shlomo Yecheskel and Yehoshua Yellin, residents of the Old City of Jerusalem, jointly acquired a plot of land in order to initiate and develop agriculture outside the walls of the Old City. Vineyards and trees were planted while using the local spring and well.

One of Israel's weirdest plants is the Sodom apple (Ptilat hamidbar) which grows in the hot oases around the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley regions. It is not a 'human friendly' plant, touching it can result in a rash as the sap of the plant is a skin irritant, while the juice is highly poisonous.
