Date fruits can be turned into jams, spreads, and even used in brewing alcohol. Date Palm is appreciated as an ornamental, and is often planted in Florida cities for urban spaces like sidewalks, highway medians, and street corners for a colorful, tropical look. It's large leaves are green and bluish-green and create large v-shaped fans. Date fruit is bright orange in color when ripe.  A mature Date Palm tree can produce up to 100 to 200 pounds of fruit per year.
