PALM - DATE MEDJOOL

Medjool Date Fruit up close taken apartBy ORGANIChouse CC BY-SA 4.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Description

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.

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
