Date Palm Tips

  • How can you tell a female date seed from a male one? 
    Unfortunately, you have to wait till flowering to know if you have a male or female if you grow the palm from seed.  However, babies which spring from the base or near the base of the date palm can be easily removed and grown as separate palms and will be clones of the palm from which they are taken.  Ref: Thurston
