A HAREM of PALMS
GREETINGS from the DATE EMPIRE
MALE AND FEMALE DATE BLOSSOMS
The fluffy white male blossom is seen on the right while the female blossom which appears like individual beads on a string is to the left. Dates have been hand pollinated for centuries as nature provides no adequate means of transferring pollen. Date groves average one male palm to a harem of 49 palms or 50 trees to the acre.
So is this guy a professional Date Pollinator?
