Dates

The date palm was one of the first trees to be cultivated, dating back at least 8,000 years. They're very popular in Middle Eastern cultures and are gaining popularity in the US due to their sweet taste and health benefits. The significant amounts of minerals found in dates make it a super food for strengthening bones and warding off painful and debilitating diseases like osteoporosis. They are delicious dried and baked into breads, stuffed, or made into syrups.
