Medjool Palm Description
Although there are many palms that we call "date palms". The
"true" date palm from which the tasty fruit is obtained is
Phoenix dactylifera which is a multi-stemmed palm from which
the suckers are usually removed to create single stemmed
specimens. Trimmed in this manner the date palm will grow to
heights of 100 ft (45.7 m). The broad gray trunk is patterned
with diamond-shaped leaf scars and is up to 16 inches in
diameter. The large greenish or bluish gray pinnate leaves are
typically 18-20 ft (5.5-6.1 m) long by 2 ft (0.6 m) wide. They
are arranged in a thick canopy up to 40 feet wide. Leaflets are
1-2 ft (0.3-0.6 m) long and arranged in V-shape ranks that run
the length of the leafstem. Leaflets near the base are modified
into sharp 3-4 in (7.6-10.2 cm) spines.
The yellow orange to red fruit, called
'dates', are oblong and about 1.5 in (3.8 cm) in length. They
consist of a large pointed seed surrounded by sweet sugary
flesh. Dates are formed from flowers on 4 ft (1.2 m)
inflorescences that emerge from among the leaves in spring. Male
and female flowers grow on separate plants. Only female plants
produce dates and only if a male tree is nearby. Dates are not
formed in climates that are too cool. When grown in humid
tropical climates like Florida, the fruit tends to be of low
quality often dropping from the tree before ripening.
