Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • medjool date seeds
  • paper towel
  • ziploc bag
  • water
  • small dish
  • potting soil
  • small plastic pots
  • plastic wrap

So after you enjoy your dates, collect the seeds and place them in a small bowl with some water covering them. You want them to stay in there, for at least a week. The water should be changed daily otherwise, nasty mold will start growing in there. After about a week, remove the seeds and rinse, and then place them on a wet paper towel which you will fold over the seeds.

Take your folded paper towel and place it in the ziploc bag, and store it away in a nice warm location. Keep an eye on the paper towel, and watch for mold. If you do see some, simply change the paper towel. After a few weeks, roots will start appearing. Remove the seeds from the paper towel and plant in a small container which should be well watered and covered in plastic until you start to see some leaves. Allow the tree to grow, before transplanting to your backyard garden.
