Safawi dates are native to the Madinah region in Saudi Arabia and botanically known as Phoenix dactylifera. Classified as a semi-dry date, they are known for their soft, luscious texture, and refreshing sweetness. Renowned for their vast health benefits, it is no surprise that these dates have been used medicinally for hundreds of years.
Unlike most other date varieties, the Safawi palm tree is prized for its productivity, making Safawi dates more commercially available all year round. They come as medium-sized, cylindrical dates with a dark black cherry color and hints of brown.
