13. Not Sure of the Facts on Dates
The first two statements below apply to fruit harvested in California but much of it from cultivars from Iraq. There is nothing conclusive here but it does look like we need more info, specifically on Iraq.

From http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/Date.html

"A number of pickings may have to be made over a period of several weeks. In the Coachella Valley, dates ripen from late September through December ..."

http://waynesword.palomar.edu/ecoph10.htm

"Pollinated dates are harvested throughout the fall months, from September to December."

From a Pakistani site: http://www.pakistaneconomist.com/issue2002/issue48&49/i...

"In 2003, Ramadan-ul-Mubarak will commence on around 28th October. The fruit is harvested in most date producing countries, other than Pakistan, in September/October. In view of these facts, global buyers of dates are keenly searching for early fresh crop supplies. Pakistan has a natural advantage. Dates ripen here as early as in the month of July. Our exporters can well make first shipments in August."

"Dates ripen from August 20 December 15th "
