About Persian Date fruits

Food nutrition

Dates are very nutritious, assimilative, and energy-producing. With the present uncertainty in the world food supply and the expected increase in demand, the date palm could be a good food source of high nutritional value. The date fruit is rich in nutrients, and due to its dietetic values, it has always been held in high esteem by people.

They are rich in carbohydrates, dietary fibers, proteins, minerals, and vitamin B complex. They are about 70% carbohydrates (equal glucose and fructose) and contain calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

History of dates

The origin of palm trees goes back millions of years ago. About seven thousand years ago, men started cultivating palm trees. The tree was first grown in Middle Eastern countries like Iran, and then it slowly spread to other countries.

Archaeologists believe that palm tree gardens were created 7,000 years ago by Iranians. Date palms have been planted in the northern Persian Gulf since ancient times and before the Achaemenid dynasty.

Dates harvesting

Dates are picked by hand and dried under the sunlight. Each palm tree is about 50 to 70 feet long. The workman should climb the tree using a relatively strong rope to pick the fruits. Not many people can climb palm trees, and for this matter, one should be very well-trained. He then collects the cluster of dates and sends it down. This would go on and on until the harvesting was done. The date is grown organically, and there is no chemical in the harvest process.
