3841828-plant-in-handsAlong with unearthing the ruins at Masada they found 5 date seeds that were carbon dated back some 2000 years ago. Permission was given to plant 3 of the seeds. They soaked the seeds in warm water, fertilizer and hormones. They potted the seeds and  after 6 weeks the first sprout appeared.
