What's up with the Jerusalem Date Palm?

This past summer I read about the amazing resilience of the Jerusalem Date Palm, a plant with legendary medical powers that was thought extinct. I have been searching for news and updates about this little guy since then, but I haven't had much luck. Are there any updates on the progress of this miraculous seed?

Here is an article from two months ago. The tree seems to be doing fine, but I haven't found any word about whether it is male or female yet.

Here is a better article from National Geographic.

The place seems to have a site where you can contact and ask.

Response by poster: Ah, sadly the contact email is a bounce - no such address. But the person's name appears to be "Elaina M. Solow."
