Name : Phoenix dactylifera
Common name of fruit : Date (English); Khajur (Hindi)
Place : Mount Abu, Rajasthan
Date : 14.11.2010
Others : Seen in arid areas of Gujerat and Rajasthan.
Date fruit is considered as an ideal food containing most of the essential nutrients like pottassium.
The flowers of the date palm are edible. Seeds of date are ground and mixed in flour during the time of scarcity.
Date palms are tapped for the sweet sap called Nira which is converted to palm jaggery.
-I did not get any flowers or fruit photos of Khajur at Mount Abu as it was not the fruiting season. However, I am sending photos of the Khajur and the dry Khajur.
– Here are some photos of the Khajur tree with fruits.
Place : Humayun’s tomb, Delhi
Fruits & Vegetables :: Ripe Dates from Oman : AK: Sending some dates from Oman taken during summer.
The dates sold in markets are generally old and shrunk. Yesterday we ate fresh-from-tree dates. They are really different and very good in taste.
Here there are many Date trees.
These are specially for the citizens to pluck & eat as they want.
When they are ripe, there is a carpet under the trees.
‘Khalas’ is the best variety of dates here.
I think it is Phoenix dactylifera. Please check the links
