Cultivated for its sweet edible fruits. Date palms bear male and female flowers on separate plants. The sex of the plant is only recognizable once it flowers. To optimize yield, remove excess male plants and replace them with females, maintaining a ratio of 1 male to 10 females. Hand pollination can significantly improve yields. Date palms grow very well in Zambia, thriving in hot weather but requiring sufficient water, especially during the flowering and fruiting seasons.
