The scientific name for this fruit, Phoenix dactyliferous, refers to feather palms that may grow more than 100 feet with a lifespan of more than 200 years and have been used as a source of food for thousands of years. Only the female date fruit palm produces fruit, but you'll need both a male and female tree for date production.

The season for date fruit season begins early in the year when we clean up the trees after the end of the sleeping period. At this time, we have to start by cutting the thorns off of the date fruit fronds. The Arabs sometimes call the date fruit palm the "king of the oasis." Palms are difficult to grow. The ideal environment for them is, as the Arabs put it, "with their feet in water and their heads in the fires of the heavens." That is, they require maximum moisture and heat. First of all, for the fruit to start growing the tree must be pollinated. This means that a special dust (pollen) from the male tree must be blown (put) onto the female tree. One week after pollination, a very small white fruit appears on the female palm.
