Where does the fruit dates come from?

Dates come from the Date Palm. And the very best dates come from Basra in Iraq. They used to produce vast quantities until Saddam Hussein had many of the trees cut down because he feared assassins might hide in the date groves. Try Iraqi dates stuffed with walnuts or coated with sesame seeds - they are terrific.
Well they ask each other out, and if they like each other, then they will go on a date.
Aren't they dried plums? Or i might be getting them confused with another dried fruit!
Dates are the berry fruits of the date palm of the palm family (Palmae, Arecaceae), which may reach up to 25 m in height. The date palm is one of the oldest cultivated plants and is probably native to the area around the Persian Gulf.

(Dried plums are called prunes)
Dates are the fruit of the date Palm, Phoenix dactylifera which belongs to the family Areaceae,. Dactylifera is Greek word for ‘finger-bearing’. The English word date derives from the Greek ‘dactylus’ and Hebrew ‘dachel’ which both mean finger. The fruit is a ‘drupe’ with a single seed in each. They are borne on clusters often weighing 10 kg or more. They contain several minerals including potassium, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium, vitamins such as riboflavin, thiamine, folic and ascorbic acid, fats and easily digested sugars (glucose, sucrose and fructose).
