National Medjool Date Day

Celebrate National Medjool Date Day with us! Each year, this sweet day is dedicated to honoring the health benefits and delightful ways to savor the unique taste of Medjool Dates. When you think of dates, chances are Medjools comes to mind, so what sets them apart?

Medjool Dates, often hailed as the "king of dates," have gained immense popularity in recent years. Bursting with sweetness and a subtle caramel flavor, these versatile fruits are not only delicious but also among the healthiest snacks available. Originating in the Middle East and cultivated for millennia, Medjool Dates made their way to the United States in the 1920s, quickly becoming a widely loved household staple. Today, they thrive in the optimal conditions of California's Coachella Valley, where warm sunshine and a dry desert climate contribute to their exceptional quality.

Beyond their delicious taste, Medjool Dates offer a multitude of health benefits. Packed with fiber, antioxidants, and essential vitamins, they stand out as a nutritious snack suitable for those embracing a healthy lifestyle. With low fat and calorie content, these dates provide guilt-free indulgence. Moreover, their natural sweetness makes them an excellent substitute for refined sugars in cooking and baking.

At Coachella’s Best Organic Dates, we offer a handful of varieties like Medjool Dates, Jumbo Medjool Dates, and Rutab Medjool Dates. Medjool Dates not only have a sweet, caramel-like flavor and hearty texture, but they're also rich in fiber and nutrients. Our Jumbo Medjool Dates are larger than other types of date varieties and have a delicious maple-syrup like flavor. The third kind of Medjool date that we carry are Rutab Medjool Dates. Rutab Medjool Dates are picked just before reaching full maturity and are very soft and juicy. Find your favorite by exploring our selection today!
