Date palm trees are palm trees that are grown for their delicious edible fruits. The date palm reaches a height of around 75 feet. Its stem, which is heavily marked with trimmed stubs of old leaf bases, ends in a crown of elegant, gleaming, pinnate leaves that is about 16 feet long. The axils of leaves that sprouted the previous year branch into floral spikes. On different plants, male and female flowers are produced. Female flowers are artificially pollinated in cultivation.
