Del Real Medjool Date.............the good life!!
We begin the dethorning process. Approx.. 1,200 thorns per tree are cut and removed.
We begin to remove the offshoots from the mother tree and plant additional acreage.
We begin pollination. We use male palms to pollinate the female trees in order to produce our fabulous Medjool Dates! **Pollination from a male tree can pollinate up to 50 female trees.
We begin to Thin the fruit on the tree to allow proper air circulation and allow growth for the fruit.
We secure the bunches of fruit in order to protect the fruit from wind and extreme movement.
We begin to ring the bunches to allow spacing and circulation.
We begin bagging the fruit to protect it from the birds and weather elements.
Harvest, sorting, packing and distribution keep us busy!!
