All About Zahidi Dates

If you haven’t yet delved into the world of dates, this is your sign to try out a delicious new Date variety! There are numerous types of Dates varieties that offer different tastes, textures, and uses. One of our all-time favorites is our Organic Zahidi Dates, they’re a must-try! This unique variety is different from Medjool Dates in texture, color, and taste, yet still bursting with bold, delicious flavor!

Zahidi is a semi-dry date. This means that the sugar content is sucrose, unlike Medjool which is fructose. Zahidi Dates actually have less sugar content than Medjool Dates but still have all of the amazing, rich flavors! Zahidi is translated to “nobility” but is also called the “butter date” due to its color and taste. We are going to give you the full run-down about Zahidi Dates and why they should be first on your list of Date varieties to try!

Zahidi Dates are smaller and lighter in color than the typical Medjool Date that you are used to seeing. They are a beautiful light amber color and a bit less wrinkly than a Medjool due to the crispy shell that surrounds the fruit. After biting through the shell you will find the firm and chewy fruit full of flavor, just don’t forget to remove the pit!

The crunchy outer shell has the texture of crystallized sugar. Compared to Medjools, the texture is firmer and chewier. The Zahidi Date has a nutty, buttery, caramel flavor that is reminiscent of caramel popcorn. People also think they taste like dried apricots, try them here and let us know what you think!

Like all of the Organic Dates at Coachella’s Best, Zahidi Dates are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These Dates are an amazing source of fiber as well as iron, potassium, and almost all 20 amino acids! 

The fiber is great for your digestive system and, when mixed with the natural sugar, provides you with all-day energy. Iron helps to prevent anemia and supports your red blood cells with vital body functions and potassium helps to prevent muscle cramps and spasms. Lastly, amino acids help your body grow, digest food, and repair tissue. Take your vitamins in a fun and delicious way by simply eating a few Dates a day! 

We hope you take the time to try these delicious Organic Zahidi Dates. The unique texture and mouth watering flavor will have you coming back for more, but don’t just take our word for it, buy Organic California Grown Zahidi Dates here and let us know what you think!
