How to Propagate Dates from Seed

These are dates but I'm not sure what kind they are.
Tried a couple and they are so sweet.
I carefully removed the seed which are thin and elongated from the sweet flesh of the date.
They don't look all the same except that they're thin, groved, and elongated.
Started by washing the seeds in cold water and remove all the remaining flesh. Take a piece of paper towel, place them along it and moisten.
Put it in a ziplock and place it in a warm location. In a few weeks they will germinate.
Here I'm trying it with a different date seed.
Will post update on this when they germinate.
