Space is definitely an issue for while I try to appreciative of the fact that I have a postage stamp sized parcel I am in fact in southern California. I think it is just about time and I am going to try to carve some time out this weekend to go meet the grower and get her/his opinion.

Unless space for growing the trees is an issue, growing a males tree along with female trees would save your the effort and expense of obtaining the pollen from elsewhere. I did find a link on hand pollenating these trees.

There should be some master gardeners in your area to ask that question to. If not then you could also go to a garden center and ask them. I am learning these things too.

I wish I could help. Unfortunately I live in a climate where we can't grow those, so I don't know anything about it. I definitely understand wanting to grow something that you spend so much money on, one reason I'm trying to plant more fruit trees and grapes.
I hope someone is able to provide some tips for you and wish you luck with this.

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

I spent sooo much money on dates in the last year and am seriously considering planting a medjool date palm. I'm thinking I will just get the female and get some male pollination each year from a local grower. Any experiences/tips you may have would be appreciated. I've been researching it for a few weeks, but will not probably make the final decision/plant until spring.
