The Olive Branch Australia has partnered with local and trusted nurseries in The West Bank and Gaza to plant date palms across Palestine. The date type is high quality Barhi and is used by locals for private and commercial use. Palestinian Barhi Dates are crunchy when less ripe, and sweet and creamy when fully ripe.
Investing in a tree is a continual charity (sadaqah jariyyah). It represents sustainable charity providing assistance to families for year and years to follow. In fact the current generation of Date Palm farmers in Palestine are benefitting from the trees planted by their grand parents.
Palestine's dry, arid and parched environment provides the best naturally territory for date palms. Date palm cultivation in the Palestinian territories spans across the The West Bank and in The Gaza Strip.
