The date palm is believed to have originated around the Persian gulf which has been cultivated in ancient times from Mesopotamia to prehistoric Egypt as early as 6000Bc and among Muslims is known to be one of the heavenly fruits.

THE USES OF DATE & THE SEED:

Date seeds are soaked and grounded for the oil witch is suitable for use in soap & cosmetic products. They can also be processed chemically as a  source of oxalic acid.

In Pakistan a viscous, thick syrup made from the ripe fruits is used as a coating for leather bags & pipes to prevent leaking.
