Iranian Dates' History
One of the oldest cultivated trees in the world is the date palm . They were first seen in the Persian Gulf area. Before palm trees were cultivated on purpose, dates were used as food for thousands of years. This cultivation is said to have started in modern-day Iran some 7,000 years ago.
Iranian dates com e in a huge variety. Persian dates are utilized in m any ways
depending on t heir characteristics and degree of color.
Every region of Iran has a climate that is appropriate for growing particular varieties of dates. The Mazafati, Klute, and Farehkon varieties of dates are all grown in Kerman Province.
Piarom , Sayer, Kabkab, and Zahedi are ideal for other provinces including
Hormozgan, Khuzestan, and Bushehr. In Iran, Hormozgan produces the
majority of the country’s dates, followed by Kerman (21.6%), Khuzestan
(17.6%), Bushehr (13.4%), Beluchestan (12.2%), and Fars(12.3%).
Palm s and people resemble each other greatly. Palm s, unlike other plant s, would not survive if the top of t heir trunk was chopped off.
Additionally, if water gets to these areas during a flood or other comparable scenario, they would perish by suffocation, just like a person would. For these and other reasons, southern Iranians treat palm trees just like a beloved friend of their own. The counting unit for palms is “person.”
