Origin and economic characteristics
The area of origin is unknown. Ludlow (cited in the work of Fulton, 1876) attributes it to Asian origins and more precisely from India. He is certain that it had been imported into England from Cairo and Alexandria; hence the name "Egyptian Swift" (Egyptian Swift). The name of Swift derives from the similarity of its shape to that of a Swift.
