Produces Dates.

The Date plantation is an Oriental Farm building that produces Dates, the most basic Oriental food. Date groves will only produce Dates on islands with the requisite Fertility, which only appears on southern islands. Alternatively, Date seeds can be purchased from Grand Vizier Al Zahir and planted on any southern island that has a customizable resource.

The maintenance cost of a Date Plantation is very high compared to the low trade value, making it the least profitable Good in the game. Don't build more than is needed.
