D is for Date

Scientific name: phoenix dactylifera
Dates are the fruit of the date palm. Dates are about 2 inches long, and very sweet. They are usually sold dried, with their seed removed. Dates are common in Middle Eastern food, and are the main ingredient of sticky date pudding.
When you like someone, you might ask them out on a date to somewhere nice like a restaurant.
