Date Palm Trees in Black & White
Saudi Arabia is where you find a thousands of Date Palm Trees. According to historical record, it is one of the oldest trees in the world and there are 300 types of dates in the Kingdom with each having its own different taste and texture. The tree is so charming that the world is amazed with its beauty and its endless generosity.
In Islam, dates have received more attention than any other fruit. The fruits symbolizes wealth.
Saudi Arabian date fruit is well known for its deliciousness. It is true that once the date is tasted once; a person will quickly become a date lover, most especially if you sip gawa coffee with it, which is served during Ramadan. I also love eating the dried dates with unsweetened green tea.
