The Date Palm Tree
Experts believe the history of the Date Palm Tree for nutritional use dates back to 6000 BC. These majestic trees whose edible fruits are highly nourishing, once fully matured can produce up to 100 kg of Dates. Their main requirements are sunshine, water and a hot and dry climate, ideally found in the oasis of the Middle East where they originate. Iran is known to grow some of the best Dates in the world.

The Date Palm tree is somewhat of a celebrity amongst other trees. Many references have been made to Date Palm Tree in Islamic, Christian, and Jewish literature. It was symbol of fertility for Egyptians, and of imperial power for the Romans. These generous trees have been part of our earth and history for years, and the Dates that grow on them only sweeten the deal.
