PALM - DATE MEDJOOL
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Seedling of the well known Californian Medjool variety. Beautiful ornamental tree with the added advantage of delicious dates. Male or female plants so plant more than one. Require a long hot dry summer. Our palms are small seedlings and are not sexed, they will take about 4-6 years to flower 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.

Question & Answer
Can you tell me if the one I am getting is male or female? From: PEAK CROSSING QLD
It is a 50/50 chance if they are male or female and you can only tell this when they start to flower. The male flowers have different flowers to the females.
Customer Comments on Palm - Date Medjool
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. | Aaron - Geelong, VIC 13-Apr-2012
