Date palm-Himalayas

A date tree laden with the fruit is a sight to behold, only if it is not in a desert or sandy area like the Middle East. In the Himalayas, almost anything and everything can flourish…homo sapiens included! The fruit is sweet and delicious, and contains minerals, fiber and trace elements,a part from the high sugar content. Parts of the tree can be used to make ropes, baskets, even fishing boats!
