Best Answer

Dates are produced on Date Palm Trees. They have Male and Female forms. The Male trees produce Pollen. They pollen fertilizes the female trees which produce the dates. Commercial groves grow only a few male trees. They take the pollen from them and fertilize the female flowers by hand. Most palms use the wind to spread their pollen but spreading pollen by hand makes fewer male trees necessary. That way more female trees can be grown and more dates produced.
