We have 30 years of experience in the dates industry and thus have extensive experience in providing dates to the global market.Dates are known to have originated around the Persian Gulf and have been cultivated since ancient times in Mesopotamia as also in prehistoric Egypt, possibly as early as 6000 BC. There is archeological evidence of date cultivation in eastern Arabia in 4,000 BC. And since then dates have been the staple food of the people in the Middle Eastern region. According to the available evidence, dates were spread around North Africa and Spain by the Arabs. Spaniards introduced dates to Mexico and California.
Dates grow in clusters below the fronds on a date palm tree. A single cluster can hold 600 to 1,700 dates. Date palms can grow as tall as 100 feet and stay in production for over 60 years. The fronds of the date palm are featherlike and 10 to 20 feet long.
The date palm is mentioned in the bible as the "tree of life," and the word "date" comes from the Greek "daktulos," which means "finger." Dates grow in large bunches which can weigh as much as 40 pounds, and large trees will yield more than 1,000 dates each year.
