2,000 year-old seed brought back to life
Extremely old seed brought back to life! But is it actually a different species from date palms living today?
Methuselah, the Judean Date Palm – links the past to the present through agriculture and archeology. One of the world's most ancient species, it is being revived after 2,000 years at the Center for Sustainable Agriculture in Israel.

The problem is that people who make decisions about what farmers can and cannot do tend to be city slickers who have no clue what they're talking about.
