Meaning: From Hayan, a man’s name (Martius 1823) – probably the owner of the original palm.
History: A soft date introduced by Fairchild in 1901 from Egypt, Hayany was the most extensively planted and important commercial date variety in Lower Egypt. Nearly all U.S. commercial plantings of Hayany were confined to the Arizona’s Salt River Valley, where about 30 acres were grown in 1946. Some palms of this variety were erroneously carried under the name Birket el Haggi in Arizona in the early 1900’s (Mason 1927).
