About Organic Dates
Dates is a delicious fruit grown on palm trees, that is believed to have been originated in the lands around the banks of Nile and Euphrates rivers. Some thousand years ago a Dates Palm tree called Methuselah, is known to have been sprouted and borne fruits, which is still now considered as one of the oldest viable seed. Date Palm is now extensively cultivated for its edible fruit in deciduous regions across India. Organic Dates are grown and harvested using renewable resources and without the use of any pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and renewable sewage water.
The fruit ‘Dates’ is derived from English and Latin as dactylifera and its origins are from Greek, meaning “finger” because of the fruit’s elongated shape. Dates are oval-cylindrical and textured in bright red and bright yellow color. There are three varieties of Dates that are cultivated and they are Soft, Semi-dry and Dry. Organic Dates are categorized according to the content of glucose, fructose and sucrose levels. You can eat about 3 to 4 Dates on daily basis to be reinvigorated all day. The Dates Palm tree is harvested after 6 to 7 years of planting and the yield happens to be less since the tree is dioecious in nature. The Dates Palm can be easily grown from seed into male and female plants, but only 50% of seedlings will be female. We manufacture Dates in the most commercial plantation manner. We cut the Dates Palm tree and make an early harvest in about 4 to 5 years duration, especially to meeting the Dates demand in the market. Nevertheless, we also cultivate the Dates Palm through seedling plants and undergo harvesting after 6 to 7 years to suffice the Dates requirements. Usually, we harvest at an early stage to avoid any damage caused by humidity and rains.
Irrigation in Dates Farming
Dates are naturally wind pollinated, but in both traditional and modern horticulture, they are entirely pollinated manually. Manual Pollination is done by skilled laborers, by climbing to the top of the Dates Palm trees and also through operating wind machine. Dates Palm tree requires sufficient amount of water to grow Dates even when they are resilient to dry and humid weather conditions. Water requirement depends on the soil moisture retaining capacity and climatic conditions. You may need to irrigate about 5 to 6 times in a year and avoid when off-shoots emerge.
