Phoenix dactylifera-Date Palm

  Edible Date  This is the commercial date species and a native of the middle east. It is rather slow growing to become a large tree with age. Young the leaves have sharp points. It is not a small palm and is in scale in only large settings. Male and females are on separate trees. With only one, there can be no fruit.
