Do you like Dates: The fruit that is? Have you considered growing them

 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😊!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 
You amaze me. Selling land in the Imperial and Coachella Valleys?

Also, I have noticed throughout Southern California the use of date palms as ornamentals (with the dates going to waste).

But I view palms as a good "crop" on land held for future use (land banking) because they can be very valuable, yet require little care and maintenance,

Endre,

There is a lady that comes up from Palm Springs to sell dates, and there is a guy who also grows dates in the wine country...all organic of course and not processed with chemicals. A

Bill Roberts  I was asked to help an agent she thought she could handle land and realized she was over her head.... needless to say I am the land guy so with that said I had to do some quick learning about Date Palm Farms and what is conducive for growth... it is in the Coachella Valley:))Endre

Endre I don't think I have ever eaten a date.  Maybe it is about time I try one.

Thanks for the informative post on the edible dates, Endre. I eat them sometimes, but not a habit.

Endre, ever since I was a young child, I have loved date cookies.  My godmother had a fantastic recipe. The only problem is if I ate too many of them, the inside of my mouth got irritated and I felt it was doing a slow burn. I always felt it was because of all the date I consumed.

I also love dates and make a mean date bar dessert, Endre! I've never grown them though - I don't think the NC climate would be sufficient for growing. It's so surprising that we are 19th in production but, produce only 0.23% of the world's dates.

Endre Barath, Jr. - I must be a typical old fart. The thought of a date, never crossed my mind. I immediately thought of the fruit. I have to confess, I've never eaten a date, and if I did, I didn't know it. I would not what to do with it and I always just skip to the next produce section.

Thanks for the education! Now I feel comfortable about trying it. However, I wish they gave out free samples of dates before I bought one.

Have wonderful day!

I do like dates and like to bake with them. I did not know that California was such a big producer of dates and they needs lots of water.

I never imagined a post on dates on this forum. You never know what will come up on AR and that keeps it so interesting. I actually start each day with a couple of dates. I don't remember when this habit started but it's been at least a decade. I have a favorite brand and will go to lengths to find it. They are very healthy.
