Scientists in Israel grow date palm plants from 2,000-year-old seeds

As per a study published in the Science Advances, scientists have grown trees from a handful of date palm seeds that were almost two-thousand-year-old. Researchers at the Louis L Borick Research Center in Jerusalem prepared the seeds by soaking them in water, then adding hormones in them to encourage germination and rooting, and finally they were planted in soil in a quarantined area.
