Fruit Trees > Temperate Fruit Trees > Date Palms > Palm - Date Medjool
Seedling of the well known Californian Medjool variety. Beautiful ornamental tree with the added advantage of delicious dates. They require both a Male and female plant for pollination and fruit set along with hot dry summers. Our palms can not be chosen as male or female. The only way to know this is after they flower. You can then identify by the flowers to know if you have a male tree or a female tree. They will take about 4-6 years to flower. We recommend a planting of at least three to increase your chances of having both a male and a female palm.

Medjool Date Seedling

I have bought 2 of these from a different supplier but no doubt they are the same except for sizes. They thrive in mid sun as seedlings as full sun to early burns their leaves. Also add some epsom salts infrequently to promote green leaves.
