Verse (6:99)

The analysis above refers to the 99th verse of chapter 6 (sūrat l-anʿām):

Sahih International: And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees - of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.

I think that this is a feminine noun and not a masculine. As the word (6:99:22) is (tali' haa) the haa refers back to the noun (nakhl) which is this word. Not sure any ideas?

Wallahu a'alam
