I don't know if your date palm would survive. I don't know if my fan palms will survive. I know someone who got a date palm to fruit in a really big pot on their porch in a climate that it would not survive the winter. I think that with enough microclimate and some little tricks you might be able to have a date palm, but you won't know until you try.

Last time I visited the Bullocks Permaculture Homestead, they gave me a pile of fan palm seeds. I have moved twice since then and fortuitously, 5 of the seedlings ended up at Wheaton Labs with me. We will see how they like Abbey life :)
