Natural Delights Premium Grade 5kg Medjool Dates.
Harvested in the Bard Valley, California, these Medjool Dates are shipped directly to Australia and are ready to be sent to your front door.
A perfect micro climate along the Colorado River, our premium Medjool dates are a pure and wholesome superfood picked straight off the tree at the peak of ripeness. They’re so plump and naturally sweet, it’s hard to believe that the only thing we add is sunshine and water.
Medjool dates demand a very specific set of growing conditions where high heat, low humidity and plentiful water meet. Lucky for you, we found the perfect location within a 150-square-mile radius at the intersection of Arizona, California and Mexico.
Bathed in sunshine and nourished by the Colorado River, Bard Valley is home to America’s favourite Medjool date.
Did you know?
– In 1944, there remained 9 surviving date palms from the 11 original palms that were transplanted from Morocco to stave off extinction. Six offshoots from those surviving Medjool palms – now known as the original 6 – were transplanted in Bard Valley, CA, starting what would become the largest Medjool date growing region in the U.S.
– Almost all of the Medjool date palms in the southwest U.S. can be traced back to the original 6 offshoots.
– Date palms are propogated from other dates shoots, not from seeds.
