Planting history

The date palm tree grows in tropical and subtropical regions, including Iran. Although its origins are mentioned in Mesopotamia, Saudi Arabia and North Africa, but scientific studies, it is known as P.H. Sivestris attributed to go to India is attributed. Archaeologists have attributed the construction of the groves to 5,000 years ago because they got their name from mud tablets 50 centuries ago.


Palms and dates have been cultivated in Iran since ancient times and before the Achaemenid period. In Sassanid literature, including the book Bandheshan, the palm is mentioned. Chinese sources refer to Iran (in his language as Bousi, the Persian pronunciation of Persian) as the land of date palms, which is known to them as Persian jujube and millennial jujube. At the end of the ninth century, date palms were taken from Iran to China and cultivated there. Among European countries, Spain has a longer history of cultivating dates.

One of the most important factors that can be effective in improving the quality and principles and thus the prosperity of the date industry in the world, is the use of superior and commercial date varieties. Historical documents written about 200 years ago mention 25 cultivars of date palms grown in and around Khorramshahr, which are still known by the same names today, but available statistics show that over 3,000 cultivars of dates are known in the world.

Wash dates before consumption

Many people do not wash dates before eating. That is, they see the appearance of dates and say that dates are so clean that they do not need to be washed. Unaware of the fact that dates are usually picked and graded with not very clean hands, and sometimes the cap on the head of the date is removed by hand, and as a result, the date will be more permeable to germs. In addition, the fruit on the tree may be contaminated with dust or bird droppings and pests such as bedbugs and tree mites. For this reason, it is recommended to wash dates before eating.


Unfortunately, in some cases, the packaging of dates is more traditional, ie the dates are graded and packaged by workers who often do not follow the hygienic points, while the cardboard bag and box intended for packaging the product itself may be prone to transmission. But dates that are vacuum-packed or wrapped in durable nylon packages that are impermeable on all sides have gone through the process of disinfection and increased shelf life hygienically. In this way, before packing the dates, a first wash is given and then the fruit is disinfected. To increase the shelf life, some factories give the dates a cold or weak heat to inactivate the date enzymes and reduce the activity of microbes.

Sometimes they increase the shelf life of dates by radiation, CO2, or gases, but none of these actions are performed on bulk dates, and the microbial load of the crop is usually high. As a result, never buy bulk dates.
