Phoenix dactylifera - Date Palm - 5pcs seeds/packet
Commercially important as the producer of dates, Phoenix dactylifera is extremely variable with hundreds of named cultivars that can be propagated by offsets only.
Some of the most popular and well-known are Medjool, Deglet Noor, Barhi and Halawi.
Dates grown from seeds are usually not suitable for fruit production: Only one in a thousand trees will bear good quality fruit.
However, the date palm is also widely used as an ornamental, and here, fruit quality does not matter.
Taller, thinner, and with spikier, bluish leaves than its popular cousin from the Canary Islands, it is a handsome tree.
Its adaptability to a wide range of climates, excellent resistance to drought, salt spray, brackish water, and various pests, and its general robustness make it the palm of choice for dry climates, temperate as well as tropical.
