Current Date Palms for Sale – Grown from Seed planted March ’23 – SAFE to plant without guard in protected locations.  Once in ground – provided you maintain moist soil – they are easy to establish with regular small applications of water. 

Dates only thrive in deserts with irrigation – they need access to moist soil to produce a crop – however once established they can survive extended dry periods. They respond to humus rich soils.

Mixed Date Varieties grown from Medjool – Thory – Zahidi – Bou Skry – Bou Fergus

P. dactylifera

Form: Palm to 3 -6  metres. Evergreen.

Functions: Livestock do not eat mature palm leaves – which makes Date Palms ideal for planting on dam walls to stop livestock from trampling the banks.

Frost and Hardiness: Handles minus 10 C. This is a mix of varieties grown from FIVE VARIETIES OF SEED see Photo Below.  All seedlings are mutants – that is – not identical to parent stock – so the exact type of date palm grown from seed is always a NEW VARIETY. Palms like a hot dry head with wet feet. Not suited to high humidity as the fruit may rot – however the palm itself will grow.  Dates needs water – from an oasis or spring – or on the edge of farm dams. Suitable for most part of Inland Australia with water.

Planting: Year round. Tree guards may useful but not essential if planted in a sheltered spot.

Product: All seedlings grown from a blend of dates with significant potential variations due to multiple male pollinators used.

Ultra TUBES: Seedlings in New Longer 200 mm  Ultra Tubes

Growth Rate: This palm (in photo) reached 2.5 metres by about year 8. Dates will all have variable growth rates and formations. Medjool is more short and clumping – while others are tall with straight trunks.

Natural Range and Soil Type: Grows here in heavy clay that was dug up from dam.

Predators: To date tested with sheep and cattle. Cattle ignore mature palms. Sheep and cattle will eat small palms.

PHOTO 7: Four month old Palms at Single Leaf Stage – with roots starting to emerge from base. Dates have fast growing roots  – so this is the optimum age to plant – roots can grow 1 metre in length in soft soil within first 12 months – roots are a mesh like structure that spreads out in all directions seeking water. On edge of waterhole roots are 2 metres deep and can now be seen as waterhole drys up to expose roots.
