Date Fruit Is One of the Most Ancient Crops

The date fruit is one of the most ancient crops, growing for thousands and thousands of years. Dates are the fruit of the date palm, a tree native to Northern Africa.

It takes up to about 200 days from pollination for the date to reach full ripening. A large portion of the calories in dates food come from sugars.

Hababauk is the term used for the female flower and the period just after pollination when the young fruit is still creamy white before gradually turning green at the kimri stage.

Stages of the ripening of a date:

  • Kimri

  • Khalal

  • Rutab

  • Tamr
