Phoenix dactylifera palm

Phoenix dactylifera (date palm) is a palm in the genusPhoenix, cultivated for its edible sweet fruit. Although its place of origin isunknown because of long cultivation, it probably originated from lands aroundIraq. It grows 70–75 feet in height growing singly or forming a clump withseveral stems from a single root system. The leaves are 4–6 m long, with spineson the petiole, and pinnate, with about 150 leaflets; the leaflets are 30 cmlong and 2 cm wide. The full span of the crown ranges from 6 to 10 m. Datescontain 20–70 calories each, depending on size and species.
Date palms can take 4 to 8 years after planting before theywill bear fruit, and produce viable yields for commercial harvest between 7 to10 years. Mature date palms can produce 80–120 kilograms of dates per harvestseason, although they do not all ripen at the same time so several harvests arerequired. In order to get fruit of marketable quality, the bunches of datesmust be thinned and bagged or covered before ripening so that the remainingfruits grow larger and are protected from weather and pests such as birds.
