Spreading out from the Middle East, date palms were carried far and wide by traders and travelers, until today they grow in most areas whose climate is dry enough. Remains of dates have been found on a number of neolithic sites, particularly in Syria and Egypt. This means that they were being eaten by man as much as 7,000 to 8,000 years ago, although we have no proof that they were cultivated that early. In the third millennium B.C. Whether that first planting was in Medina or elsewhere, the date palm soon spread to the coasts of Africa, to Spain - where it is still grown in the east, a reminder of the period of Arab domination - and to western Asia. In northern India, however, it is said to have been introduced by the soldiers of Alexander the Great, who spat the stones from their date ration around the camp so that, in the course of time, palm groves grew up. This century the date was introduced into southern California, where is it still cultivated on a limited but productive.
