Palm of Piarom dates
Piarom palm date is very resistant and grows well in salty soil. To reproduce this palm, it must be used as an offshoot of the tree, known as fossils in Hajiabad city. Removing fossils and moving them to a new space requires a lot of skill and is done by one person known as a master that having a lot of experience.
To move the fossil or offshoot to another area, it must first be carefully cut off from the mother plant and its root should not be harmed. The fossil should then be transported to a pre-prepared section with soft soil and filled with soft soil around it.
This has led to Piarom date palm cultivation become one of the most difficult cultivation of date palms. This fossil will need to be treated later to grow, but it should be kept in mind that fossils need at least 10 years to grow into a mature tree.
Given that the palm of Piarom growing site has relatively cooler climates than other palms, the Piarom dates is later than other dates and the harvest is usually late October.
palm of Piarom date needs pollination. This will make Piarom date palm bear fruit. Pollination of the palm tree is done in late winter and early spring, and the better the pollination conditions are, the better the quality of the date.
