HISTORY OF DATES• Dates have been a staple food of the Middle East for thousands of years. They are believed to have originated around the Persian Gulf, and have been cultivated since ancient times from Mesopotamia to prehistoric Egypt, possibly as early as 4000 BCE. The Ancient Egyptians used the fruits to be made into date wine, and ate them at harvest. The Egyptians also ate another fruit of the Palm Tree, The Fruits of The Doum Palm. There is archaeological evidence of date cultivation in eastern Arabia in 6000 BCE. (Alvarez-Mon 2006).• In later times, Arabs spread dates around South and South West Asia, northern Africa, and Spain and Italy. Dates were introduced into Mexico and California by the Spaniards in 1765• Dates in Chiangmai was planted early 2000. by mr Khun Sak Lumjuan
DATES IN THAILAND Dates Palm ProjectScientific Name : Phoenix dactylifera Linn.Family Name : PalmaeCommon Name : Date PalmBottanical Traits Date palm trees contain single trunks (with occasional shoots)Trunk: Between 30 – 50 centimeters in circumference and up to 30 meters in heightLeaves: Feather-like leaves with elongated and sharp tips of a waxy bronze colourFlowers: Flower clusters sprouting from the base of leavesFruits: Oval shaped and yellowish-orange in colour, turning light brown to dark brown when fully ripe. Ripening stages divided into 4 phases: young date, fully mature date, ripe date, dried date
DATES IN THAILAND Research InformationThai Date PalmsPlanting – Dig a 50 x 50 centimeter hole and line thebottom with manure or compost. Planting at 8 x 8 meter intervals will get 25 plants per rai. Date palms do notlike excessively wet or damp areas.Care and Maintenance – Date palms should be wateredapproximately every 5-7 days, or according to thedampness of soil. Quality date palms should be givensufficient water at a consistent rate. Fertilizer – The use of manure will result in 1-2 kilograms of produce, twice a year, per tree; together with proper maintenance of soil and eradication of weeds surrounding each plant. Trimming – Aged leaves of date palms tend to get dry and it is recommended that they are cut off to aid in the maintenance of plants, keeping it clean and reducing any possible problems that may arise from pests and insects, although date palms generally have very few problems with pests. Harvesting – Based on the color of the date palm, fruits can be harvested when they have turned a dark yellow. The fruits are oval in shape and grow in bunches or clusters with 4 developmental phases consisting of unripe, mature, ripe, and dried, with the entire 4 periods from flowering to harvesting lasting between 7-8 months.
DATES IN THAILANDStorage – Ripe date palms stored at 8 degrees Celsius canbe kept for 1 year.PollinationIn collecting male pollen, male plants flower before femaleplants and can be noticed when the blossom or spedixbegins to protrude. When the blossom breaks open,within will be the flower with jagged petals. Cover theflower with a plastic bag and shake, the pollen willdisperse inside the bag. Remove excess air within the bag,close and seal the bag and refrigerate.
DATES IN THAILANDFirst Date Palms developed for fresh consumption, made possible in Thailand . Date palms are one of the many plants in the diverse palm family, originally found in the middle-easternregions of Northern Africa, both as single trunks and clusters. The trunks grow to about 30 meters heightwith circumferences of between 30 – 50 cm. Flower clusters sprout from the base of leaves, with eachtrunk consisting of approximately 40 – 60 leave stems. The leaves can measure up to 30 – 50 centimetersand are shaped much like feathers while subsidiary leaves sprout in all directions. Date palms arecommonly bred through the planting of seeds or shoots, producing rather slow developments. Thai datepalms are often planted for gardening and ornamental purposes, with spade-shaped fruits of about 2 – 4centimeters.Ripe date palms mature from yellow to an orange colour and while edible, are not commonly consumedas the fruits are small and astringentin taste. The fruits distributed in department stores are preserved orprocessed date palms with an extremely sweet taste,often imported from abroad, with high prices ofapproximately 500 – 600 baht per kilogram,highest in quality being imported from Israel.Khun Sak Lumjuan the agriculturalist and owner of “Date Farm”farm, located in Thailand, briefly outlined that after graduating asthe 36th class from Maejo University and beginning his career inretail as the owner of a distribution outlet of agricultural tools, hebegan to think that date palms, commonly grown for ornamentalpurposes, should also be freshly consumed or processed as doneabroad. With that thought, he began planting date palms, startingwith 30 trees, planted in plots with a distance of8 x 8 meters.
DATES INReceiving advice from Professor Nutthawut Pasayawan , the Director of the Office of Biotechnological THAILANDResearch and Development within the Department of Agriculture. Professor Pasayawan providedguidelines on new breeding methods that would aid in the pollination of the female flower by placing themale pollen inside a plastic bag and refrigerating it until the female flower has fully matured beforecovering the female flower with the plastic bag in which the male pollen has been stored. This process aids in the production of numerous date palm fruits which.When fully mature , can be used for further breeding, gaining ideal breeding plants to be used for phase 2.Date palms planted in phase 2 produce fruits that have various beneficial qualities and are easy to plant,much like coconuts. To enable rapid development, the plot in which the date palm is to be planted shouldbe lined with manure and compost or organic fertilizers, avoiding humid and soggy areas, and providing a moderate amount of water with only a slight increase during periods of drought.The leaves of these date palm trees are of a whiter colour than ornamental date palms and when positioned in direct sunlight or light, the leave will turn an illuminated white. In comparison to the planting of date palms abroad, the total amount of time from planting to fruition is 3 years , whereas elsewhere it is said to take up to 7 years. Aside from the ability to provide fruits 2 times annually , there have been no recorded instances of infestations of pests or diseases. The first harvest is towards the end of January while the second harvest is in early July, whereas date palms planted abroad can only be harvested once a year.
DATES IN THAILANDThe date palms are produced in large quantities with large fruits, lots of flesh, and small seeds .When mature, the fruits turn a dark yellow and can be consumed, once the flesh is soft and crisp, withoutremoving the skin. Ripe date palms turn brown and experience an increase in sweetness, measured atapproximately 17-20 Brix. If stored at around 8 degrees Celsius, the fruits can be kept for up to 1 yearwithout being preserved. Aside from being able to freshly consume date palms, these fruits also containqualities that aid in the reduction of thirst and dehydration, as well as the reduction of phlegm. Currentdevelopments have been coordinated with the Department of Agriculture to certify this date palm as aspecies and as an organic plant species that contains no chemicals and pesticides, in hopes that thestability and characteristics of this species may enable further reproduction through means of tissuecultivation.

Date nutritional valueWith the present uncertainty in the world food supply and the expected increase indemand, the date palm could be a good source of food of high nutritional value. Infact, date fruit is rich in nutrients, and due to its dietetic values it has alwaysbeen held in high esteem by people. Compared to other fruits and foods(apricot: 520 calories/kg; banana: 970 calories/kg; orange: 480 calories/kg;cooked rice: 1,800 calories/kg; wheat bread: 2,295 calories/kg; meat (withoutfat): 2,245 calories/kg, dates give more than 3,000 calories per kilogram.The date fruit consists of 70 % carbohydrates (mostly sugars), making it one ofthe most nourishing natural foods available to man. The water content isbetween 15 to 30 % depending on the variety and on the maturity stage of thefruit.In most varieties, the sugar content of a date fruit is almost entirely of theinverted form (namely glucose and fructose), important for persons who cannottolerate sucrose The invert sugar in dates is immediately absorbed by thehuman body without being subjected to the digestion that ordinary sugarundergoes.The flesh of dates contains 60 to 65 % sugar, about 2.5 % fibre, 2 % protein andless than 2 % each of fat, minerals, and pectin substances. Date fruits are also agood source of iron, potassium and calcium, with a very low sodium and fatcontent. In addition, moderate quantities of chlorine, phosphorous, copper,magnesium, silicon and sulphur are also found in the date fruit
• Date fruit is called a mine in itself because it is very rich in minerals. Its phosphorous content is similar to that found in the same quantity of apricots, pears and grapes put together.• Its high content of magnesium (±600 mg/1kg of dates) could also be very beneficial. Date consumers in Saharan areas are known to have the lowest rate of cancer diseases, a fact attributed to the magnesium found in dates.• With only 1 mg of sodium per 100 g , dates are good food for those on a low sodium diet. The iron content of 3 mg per 100g is almost a third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for an adult male. Note that fibre, even though it is not a nutrient for humans, is of much value in a diet as an aid to digestion and evacuation. There is ample evidence that for most persons a diet fairly high in fibre is healthier than one low in fibre.• Furthermore, dates are a good source of vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), and B7 (nicotinic acid also called niacin). The following contents per kilogram are an average for all date varieties: vitamin A, 484 international units; B1, 0.77 milligram (mg); B2, 0.84 mg; and B7, 18.9 mg.• According to Genske and Weers, (1973), one kilogram of the flesh of ripe Deglet Noor dates contains the following: water (220g), sugar (730g; 2740 calories), proteins (22g), Fats (2g) and minerals (19g,) K 6480mg), P (630mg), Ca (590mg), Mg (580mg), Fe (30mg) and Na (10mg)), vitamin A (500 units), vitamin B1 (0.9mg), vitamin B2 (1mg) and vitamin B7 (22mg).
Traditional medicinal uses• Dates have a high tannin content and are used medicinally as a detersive (having cleansing power) and astringent in intestinal troubles. As an infusion, decoction, syrup, or paste, dates may be administered for sore throat, colds, bronchial catarrh, and taken to relieve fever and a number of other complaints. One traditional belief is that it can counteract alcohol intoxication. The seed powder is also used in some traditional medicines.• A gum that exudes from the wounded trunk is employed in India for treating diarrhea and genito-urinary ailments. The roots are used against toothache. The pollen yields an estrogenic principle, estrone, and has a gonadotropic effect on young rats.
Food uses• Dry or soft dates are eaten out-of-hand, or may be pitted and stuffed with fillings such as almonds , walnuts, candied orange and lemon peel, tahini, marzipan or cream cheese. Pitted dates are also referred to as stoned dates. Dates can also be chopped and used in a range of sweet and savory dishes, from tajines (tagines) in Morocco to puddings, kaak (types of Arab cookies) and other dessert items. Dates are also processed into cubes, paste called "ajwa", spread, date syrup or " honey" called "dibs" or "rub" in Libya, powder (date sugar), vinegar or alcohol. Recent innovations include chocolate-covered dates and products such as sparkling date juice, used in some Islamic countries as a non-alcoholic version of champagne, for special occasions and religious times such as Ramadan.• Dates can also be dehydrated, ground and mixed with grain to form a nutritious stockfeed. Dried dates are fed to camels, horses and dogs in the Sahara. In northern Nigeria, dates and peppers added to the native beer are believed to make it less intoxicating.• Young date leaves are cooked and eaten as a vegetable, as is the terminal bud or heart, though its removal kills the palm. The finely ground seeds are mixed with flour to make bread in times of scarcity. The flowers of the date palm are also edible. Traditionally the female flowers are the most available for sale and weigh 300–400 grams. The flower buds are used in salad or ground with dried fish to make a condiment for bread.
Food uses• According to a study by Al-Shahib and Marshall, in many ways, "dates may be considered as an almost ideal food, providing a wide range of essential nutrients and potential health benefits." The sugar content of ripe dates is about 80%; the remainder consists of protein, fiber, and trace elements including boron, cobalt, copper, fluorine, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc• In India and Pakistan, North Africa, Ghana, and Côte dIvoire, date palms are tapped for the sweet sap, which is converted into palm sugar (known as jaggery or gur), molasses or alcoholic beverages. In North Africa the sap obtained from tapping palm trees is known as lāgbī (pronounced [laːɡ biː ]). If left for a sufficient period of time (typically hours, depending on the temperature) lāgbī easily becomes an alcoholic drink. Special skill is required when tapping the palm tree so that it does not die.• In Southeast Spain (where a large date plantation exists including UNESCO protected Palmeral of Elche) dates (usually pitted with fried almond) are served wrapped in bacon and shallow fried.
Other uses of the plant 1) Date seeds are soaked and ground up for animal feed. Their oil is suitable for use in soap and cosmetics. They can also be processed chemically as a source of oxalic acid. The seeds are also burned to make charcoal for silversmiths, and can be strung in necklaces. Date seeds are also ground and used in the manner of coffee beans, or as an additive to coffee.2) Stripped fruit clusters are used as brooms. In Pakistan, a viscous, thick syrup made from the ripe fruits is used as a coating for leather bags and pipes to prevent leaking. Date palm sap is used to make palm syrup and numerous edible products derived from the syrup.3) Date palm leaves are used for Palm Sunday in the Christian religion. In North Africa, they are commonly used for making huts. Mature leaves are also made into mats, screens, baskets and fans. Processed leaves can be used for insulating board. Dried leaf petioles are a source of cellulose pulp, used for walking sticks, brooms, fishing floats and fuel. Leaf sheaths are prized for their scent, and fibre from them is also used for rope, coarse cloth, and large hats.4) Date palm wood is used for posts and rafters for huts; it is lighter than coconut and not very durable. It is also used for construction such as bridges and aqueducts, and parts of dhows. Leftover wood is burnt for fuel.
