Dear Tanty,
it does look like a coconut tree but date tree is a lot massive in size and rougher. The ones in the picture are old trees. It normally bears fruit on its first year.
JoAnn, it is a Date tree, belongs to smae family with coconut/plam tree. Mostly grown in Middle East and Desert. The fruit is delectable and found in all Middle East's Houses and Most Muslim world. It is served fresh, dried and even in cake nowaday.
