History: The Badrayah is a large, dry date, well known and highly esteemed in northern Iraq, but not extensively grown, occuring chiefly in the oases of Badrah and Mandali. The palm has some resemblance to Zahidi but differs in less-glaucous leaves, more yellowish leaf bases with wide bands of fiber across them.
