The date palm is a monocotyledon angiosperm belonging to the Family of Arecaceae (also known as Palmaceae) family, which includes about 200 genera, including the genus Phoenix, which comprehends 12 species, among which only 6 produce edible fruits. The Phoenix Dactylifera is not a tree, but a shrub, with a trunk of up to 30 metres in height, conspicuously covered with the remains of the sheaths of the fallen leaves
The date palm (Phoenix Dactylifera L.) is a typical species of desert oases, and is native to North Africa, from where it spread widely to the hot arid regions of the world, especially Arabia and up to the Persian Gulf, where - given its extensive cultivation - it makes up the vegetation typical of oases. The date palm is considered to be the first tree to be grown by humanity and is a plant of ancient origin that already existed in the orchards grown by the Assyrians and Egyptians.
It is believed that its origin lies in the Persian Gulf and that date palms have been grown since remote antiquity (around 4000 BCE) in an area stretching from Mesopotamia to Egypt.
The date was considered by the Persians to be a symbol of fertility, while the palm tree was depicted by the Carthaginians on coins and monuments and used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans as an ornament during triumphal celebrations. The ancient Coptic texts relate that, during pregnancy, the Virgin Mary fed on dates.
The Romans used dates to flavour wine, make cakes and produce alcoholic beverages through fermentation. They attributed symbolic values of honour and victory to this plant because, even burdened by the consistent weight of its fruits, it did not bend, but rather tried desperately to rise upwards.
In the imperial era, it was customary to give a palm branch to the great actors, auriga or gladiators, and in the Christian tradition, the palm, besides being a symbol of martyrdom, evokes the triumphal entrance of Jesus to Jerusalem.

You can store organic Medjool dates in cool, dry places away from heat and moisture. Here are 4 useful tips:
- The best way to store dried organic Medjool dates is in a refrigerated environment. Nuturally organic Medjool dates with no added sugar – containing only natural sugar - can also be stored at room temperature during the winter season given the low temperatures. During summer, however, it is advisable to store the product in the refrigerator or in the coolest possible environment as increased temperatures could encourage decay.
- The ideal container for the storage of organic Medjool dates is glass. Indeed, because of its composition it is impervious to chemical agents and gases, and, as it has excellent insulation properties, it holds the initial temperature for longer than other materials. It is even better if the glass is coloured: using coloured glass blocks the entry of certain wavelengths of light (including ultraviolet), and thus certain nutritional and organoleptic characteristics remain unaltered.
- The type of closure of the container is also important as an airtight cap ensures that the food is protected from excessive contact with oxygen, that is fundamental for aerobic bacteria.
- The best kind of storage environment is one which is well ventilated because ventilating the premises keeps internal humidity under control, which otherwise could escape from windows, thereby guaranteeing the right balance to lessen the onset of mould.
