If you live in a sunny climate, sprouting and planting a date seed can be a fun project. The seeds from dates can grow into date palm trees that you¡¯ll be able to enjoy in your home, porch, or garden. Simply collect and wash the pits from some medjool dates, then let them germinate for a couple months. Once the seeds sprout, you can plant them in a pot of soil. Water them well and give them as much sunlight as possible. Date palms are slow-growing, so you may have to wait up to 4 years before they grow to full size, but the planting process is an easy way to get started!
