A journey into the world of the queen of fruit and her magnificent tree, a crop that stretches across national borders and historical eras, appearing in competing religious traditions and bringing together the different peoples of the Middle East.

A conversation ranging from a date orchard in Abu Dhabi to a conference on a ferocious weevil devouring millions of trees, to a lost spy, and to a 2,000-year-old seed from Roman Judea reborn in Israel’s Arava desert.
