Phoenix dactylifera, commonly known as date or date palm, is a flowering plant species in the palm family, Arecaceae, cultivated for its edible sweet fruit. Date trees are groomed and maintained year round and they typically reach about 21-23 meters in height. Each tree can produce approximately 150-250 pounds of fruit each harvest!
Established in 1912, Oasis Date Gardens is one of the oldest date gardens in the Coachella Valley!
Our 175-acre producing farm harvest over 16 date varieties, grown and cared for the organic way.
WE LOVE DATES™
We believe that it is important to grow a beautiful varietal date, but also one rich in flavor.
LABOR OF LOVE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
At Oasis Date Gardens we take pride in what we do. From the farmers, pickers, packers, producers, production and sales team, our experienced staff is committed to providing excellent customer service and high quality fruit that exceed expectations. You can be confident that every month we are working hard to achieve the best harvest possible.
It all begins as we carefully plant and groom each tree for seven years before they are ready to produce fruit. And when our trees have reached full maturation, we tend to each of our trees assiduously via a mix of traditional and innovative growing techniques - all environmentally conscious and efficient.
We combine ancient wisdom and modern technology to grow outstanding dates. We thin our ranches regularly, because more space between trees means more sunlight and more efficient water usage. The results are stunning:
• Larger, fleshier and sweeter fruit • Abundant crops each and every year • Reduced need for water and fertilizer
Oasis Date Gardens takes care of every detail from the field to your home to bring you amazing and delicious fruit ready to enjoy!

Dates grow in different stages. Right before the Rhutab stage is the the Khalal stage. In the Rhutab stage, the medjool date fruit changes from a yellow/red to a brown or black color. The tip of the organic date fruit starts to ripen. This stage lasts for about 2 - 4 weeks. The date fruit decreases in weight at this stage; it also becomes sweet. The moisture in this stage is usually 30% - 45%. The Rhutab stage is only harvested and shipped in September. It is the second edible stage of medjool dates, at which the date fruit is delicate, translucent, moist, and very juicy with a luxurious, melt-in-you-mouth, texture.
