PALM - DATE HONEY BARHEE

Date barhee freshBotanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Description

The Honey Date Palm is the Barhee dates very famous nickname because the taste is of soft melting honey and caramel. It is not as famous as the Medjool Date possibly because it is not as big and much harder to be packaged, transported and stored due to having a lot more liquid in the flesh and easily bruised. So although it can not compete on practicality it can definitely match and better in it's honey like taste. By far the sweetest date variety. You need a Male and Female to pollinate and this can be done via the wind. Via the wind one male plant can pollinate a female plant but if space is a problem and you would rather more female plants than it might be best to pollinate by hand to ensure fruit set. Our palms are small seedlings and are not sexed, they will take about 4-6 years to flower approx and you will not be able to sex them until then, we recommend a planting of at least three to increase your chances of having both a male and a female palm. If you get a long hot dry summer then dates are a must for your backyard. Also the cost of dates often exceeds $20 per kg so when you do get a big harvest it will be well worth it. Especially when these dates taste like honey and are much more unique and special than the Medjools. The name Barhee comes from the Arabic word barh meaning hot wind.
