Black Sphinx Date Palms Seeds

Recommended Posts

_Keith

20 each free to first 4 takers.   Already committed 20 or so to member in Croatia.   So, if you research Black Sphinx, it is either a mutant or a sport, so who knows what you'll get from the seed, if anything.   My poor seed skills are known the planet over.   Anyway, first 4 to speak up on this thread will get them for free.   If you are not satisfied, I will refund your money.

I'd love the last 20 if you still have them.

I'm sorry about your mother - hope she is / will be OK. That of course trumps all.

There is a whole commercial grove of them and there is also a web page of the University of Arizona including among other date varieties also the Black Sphinx...

In December I visited the black sphinx date grove in Phoenix.  The grove is a hip residential area now.  No date fruit or pollinated seeds to be found, only un-pollinated fruit.  I did find the dates for sale at Whole Foods nearby!  I bought a box ($8.99 for 12 oz), enjoyed the fruit, then planted the seed.  The trees are attractive with a neat story behind them.

I never did receive any back then - My guess is his family issues has put his plant playing aside. 

Hope all is OK, bud.
