Do you like Dates: The fruit that is? Did you know where the United States ranks in the Date Palm Growing Regions of the Globe? Have you considered growing them?
Well if you did not know the answers to the questions, do not feel bad, let me assure you neither did I.
Having had to do some of the research I discovered that Egypt is the number one Country when it comes to Date Palm Productions. They are so far ahead in production in Metric Tons compared to the rest of the Globe it is hard to fathom. Let me just say, they produce about 19% of the Worlds Dates. Iran and Saudi Arabia come in second and third respectively. These three countries produce about 47% of the Globe’s Date Production. Truly amazing.
The United States comes in with a mere 0.23% production of the world’s dates. Hence after I was studying this data I recognized that there is a huge shortage of Date Palm-Growing Worldwide and the United States is the only North American Country that ranks in the World Production of Dates.
Not that this is something to brag about, when you produce less than a .25% of the world’s dates. Now with that said California is the largest producer of dates in the United States. We as a country rank only in 19th place among the major Date Palm – Producing Countries of the World.
Clearly there is an opportunity to improve and generate profits.
The major factors that have influence in the date palm cultivation consists of: climate, soil, water quality, air temperature, rain fall, wind, humidity and the list goes on and on.
Just to shorten my post prolonged dry and hot summers with modest winter temperature are essential in a successful date palm cultivation. Hence the desert type climate of certain parts of California make it an ideal place to grow Date Palms.
Water is a key component of date farming. Interestingly the better water management is achieved the better the date palm productions are. There have been studies that most farmers are using more than twice as much water as it is needing to irrigate the date palm plants. Hence with technology and water conservation the United States could catapult itself to a higher standing in the world production of Dates.
If you are interested there are different varieties of Dates, I have tasted at least four different kinds😊!
