Large Safawi Dates

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.

what delicious dates! After reading an article about the variety of dates savored in the world, I googled dates and found Oasis. They were fast and the products are delicious! however I bought Ajwa dates, not Safawi dates.

The Sawafi Dates are almost like mini-Medjools. Much smaller, and moist, not dry. but not quite as moist as Medjools. I thought I detected a tiny bit of chocolate flavor (my husband didn't). Good date.

Thank you so much for this review. We really appreciate you being a customer. We’re here for you anytime.

The moisture level was perfect. Nice and chewy, balanced flavor and sweetness. They can be described as a toned down Medjool date. I love Medjool’s, but they are just a bit too sweet in my opinion for everyday consumption. They can also be described as being very moist and melty when you peel them apart. A bit sticky at times. Safawi’s are a little firmer. However, they are still soft with a very balanced moisture content in comparison. Both have their uses. These have a pleasant sweetness with great flavor and are easy to consume regularly.
