Dates! Written by Basel Al Ahmari

Dates are a kind of fruit and they grow on palm trees usually in hot places, such as Saudi Arabia and Iraq. 

Sometimes dates become dry or sticky. They're also sweet and soft. It's good because it's natural sugar, but there's a stone inside them with you don't eat.

Our international students 

When dates appear on palm trees they'll be green but when they grow they become yellow then orange, then red, and finally black.

Historians disagree about the origin of dates. Some historians say it's Was around the Arabian gulf before 6000BC. Egyptians were known to use dates in wine.
