View of ripe dates and palm branches. This photo was taken in October—at the time when the dates are ready to be picked.
A single palm tree can produce over 125 lbs. [55 kg.] of fruit each year. The fruit can be eaten fresh or dried and many believe that usually the “honey” mentioned in the Bible was made from dates—rather than being “bee honey.”
This particular tree is in the Wadi es–Sir east of Amman Jordan.
