Highest quality and hand picked dates fruit...

What is date fruit?

If you’ve never tried date fruit before, it’s perhaps not surprising. Whilst they are a popular staple food of the Middle East, where they have been around for thousands of years, they are not as commonly found elsewhere in the world. In essence, dates are the fruit of the date palm. They are a small (2cm to 7cm), oval fruit with a seed in the middle. The word date actually comes from the Greek work 'daktylos', meaning 'finger' due to their shape. There are many different varieties of dates, each with its own unique texture and taste, and varying in colour.

Dates also vary in moisture content and are grouped accordingly into 3 types – soft dates or wet dates, semi-dried dates and dried dates – depending on their moisture content. Soft dates or wet dates, such as Mazafati, Medjool, Halawy, Barhee and Khadrway dates, are thick-fleshed, moist and have a sweet, caramel flavour. Semi-dried dates, such as Piarom, Sayer, Kabkab, Deglet Noor, and Deyri, have a firmer, crunchy, fibrous flesh. Dried dates, such as Zahedi, and Thoory dates, have not been deliberately dehydrated in the way that other dried fruits are produced, but are dry simply because they contain very little moisture when ripe and these are less sweet.


Ajwa Dates

The Ajwa variety of dates is one that is cultivated in the Madina munawara region of Saudi Arabia. It is a black date that is sweet, with a fruity and fresh flavor. The dates tend to be small in size and have a soft texture. They are also considered to be one of great religious significance to Muslims, as Prophet Muhammad is quoted as having said, “One who eats seven Ajwa dates in the morning will be free of magic and poison on that day that he eats them.” Due to this, it is the most exquisite and pricey of the date varieties, especially in Saudi Arabia. Despite its costliness, the Ajwa variety of dates is always in high demand.

Rabbi dates come just behind Stamaran, Shahani, Mazafati and Kabkab dates as having the most economic value of all date produce in Iran.


Medjool Date

Medjool dates as the “diamond of dates” are typical for their special attributes, as they are large in size, have a special sweet caramel-like and juicy fresh taste even when they are dried. They are originally from Middle East and North Africa however; they can be grown in some desert-like regions successfully.

They have skin that is almost translucent and dark brown in color. The flesh has supple wrinkles. The mabroom date is not very sweet but has a characteristic taste and chewy flesh. When dried, it has a unique texture that is both soft and firm, with a fibrous taste.

Safawi dates are a special variety of dates mainly grown in Saudi Arabia in the Al-Madina region.
Safawi dates are a soft, semi-dried date variety; characteristically identified by their particular deep black colour, their length and medium size. They share similarities with Ajwa dates such as taste. They are however more oblong in shape as compared to the Ajwa date. The Safawi variety of date palm is characterised by its productivity and this makes the dates easily available and easy to get at any time of the year as opposed to the rest of the other varieties.


Deglet Noor Dates

The Deglet Noor date is one of the various cultivars of dates. The name Deglet Noor in Arabic means ‘queen of dates’. It originated from Algeria. It is also grown in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, the United States of America as well as numerous Mediterranean countries such as Iran. Algeria is the world’s largest producer of this variety of dates, where it is grown in the Biskra province, in particular areas known to have oases.


Date Palm

About 3% of the earth’s farmland is covered by date palms, producing four million tons a year. There are many date plantations across the world, with some varieties of date being exclusive to particular countries or regions. According the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, the main date fruit producers include Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Iraq, Pakistan, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Tunisia and Libya. They are, however, grown in other countries which can offer the right conditions for proper cultivation.

To grow as they should, date palms require the right balance of environmental factors including a sufficient direct sunlight and just the right amount of water as allowing the soil to dry out can be disastrous and stop the date palm from growing completely. They also require fertilizer and just the right temperature (above 20°C). Because of these requirements, the areas in which they can be grown are restricted. Typically, they are grown tropical or sub-tropical countries which can offer the right climate – this is where we find the main producers listed above. Date plantations are, however, found in warm areas of the United States (predominatly in the Coachella Valley, California), as well as in warmer areas of Europe, such as southern parts of Spain. It is worth noting that there are varieties of date palm which can withstand cold conditions; however, these palms rarely bear fruit, which is the ultimate goal of producers.
