    I like these kind of tours because these are just ordinary individuals, not professional orchards.

    Scott needs to replace his date palms with something more appropriate for his climate – like Jujube which tastes like a date when dried.
    Dates are not consistent producers even in SoCal. They are successfully grown only in Central Cal areas with desert climate. Dates need arid climate and 2-3 months of consistent temps (night and day) 90 to 100F to make sweet fruit. In humid climate they are susceptible to a wide range for diseases. Also dates are dioecious. Female palms need pollen from male palm to set fruit. Growing from seed is a bad idea since dates are slow growing and it takes 5-6 years to find out sex of the palm and then another 3-4 years before it can produce fruit. Dates are usually grown from pumps like bananas. Most of date plams start producing crop at 5 feet tall

    Love your field trip videos. If you ever come to San Diego I would love to do a West Coast field trip with you.

    Scott's place is a mess!He doesn't seem to know his plants.Most of questions Chris asked were not known to him. It also appeared to me,he has an abundant backyard garden!As a gardener or gardener to be, we all must know our plants at least a little bit and eat the bounty off of them.This is not a discouragement to scott's efforts rather a heads up for all of us who are trying to make a difference. Chris was superb as always.
