PRODUCT INFORMATION
The DAYRI is a semi-dry date from southern Iraq, named for Dayr, a place where a convent is located. Therefore it is called “The Monastery date.” It was first imported in 1913, but due to special care required to produce high quality fruit, it never became an important commercial variety. Its fruit is almost black when ripe, long and slender, and the flesh is soft and the flavor distinctive.

CURRENTLY SOLD OUT UNTIL NEW HARVEST IN OCTOBER

PRODUCT INFORMATION
The KHAISAB is a soft, black date, originally from the area of the modern-day United Arab Emirates. In its native homeland, it is often consumed in the Khalal stage – that is while it is still hard and crisp, before it begins to ripen and soften. In this stage it is quite sweet and slightly astringent with a striking red color. In the U. S. it is usually allowed to ripen fully and is prized for its rich, sweet flavor and distinctive black color.

Barhi Organic Dates - 5 Lbs., 10 Lbs.

Title:
Barhi Organic Dates - 5 Lbs.
Body: 
PRODUCT INFORMATION
One outstanding soft date is the BARHI, introduced from Basra, Iraq, in 1913. The meaning of the name is uncertain, possibly associated with the hot summer winds (“bahr”) at Basra, supposed to have some effect on the maturity of the fruit. The fruit is almost round and amber to mahogany brown when ripe. The flesh is thick, soft, smooth, and translucent and the flavor is rich, and delicate. This is an exceptionally fine date and its deliciously sweet flavor has earned it the nickname of the “honey ball” date. Many of the Barhi grown at Oasis Date Gardens are harvested and sold in the Khalal stage of ripening. In this stage the Barhi is bright yellow and crisp like an apple, with a sweet astringency that makes it a true delicacy.
- Also available in the Khalal stage (Yellow barhi) only in August call: 1-800-827-8017

Golden Zahidi Organic Dates - 5 Lbs., 10 Lbs.

Title:
Golden Zahidi Organic Dates - 10 Lbs.
Body: 
PRODUCT INFORMATION
ZAHIDI means “of a small quantity” or “nobility,” It was introduced around the 1900s and it originated in northern Iraq. It is a medium sized, roundish date, a golden color when ripe, and an excellent shipper and keeper. It is classified as a semi-dry date and part of of the crop is picked dry and then prepared for market by a simple steam hydration process. As such, it makes a very good cooking date, and, in fact, this variety in the hydrated form constitutes such a large percentage of California dates on the market that many people are not aware of the really fine natural soft dates we have.

- 10 Lbs. currently come in two 5 Lb. boxes
