A date with dates

I love gorging on dates and was instantly drawn to these palms laden with unripe dates in a neighbour hood park.  They still need a couple of weeks to ripen before I can taste them 😦

Interestingly, unlike many other plants that wilt in the scorching sun, the date palm needs summer heat and low humidity to ripen its fruit. That explains why they are abundant in the desert.
