Deglet Noor Dates originating from Touggourt in the Algerian Sahara

This date fruit is the most widely planted and commercially important date variety in the United States. The Deglet Noor variety is said to have originated early in the seventeenth century near Touggourt in the Algerian Sahara.

Deglet Noor dates were first introduced to the United States in 1900; initially introduced to Arizona then California. This first importation of offshoots was planted near Tempe, in cooperation with the Arizona Agricultural Experiment Station.  Four years later a few of the young palms were transplanted to the new experiment station established at Mecca, at the lower end of the Coachella Valley. It was soon evident that Deglet Noor produced better quality fruits in California.

The demand for Deglet Noor offshoots led to several large importations in the period between 1911-1921. The Coachella Valley proved more favorable for fruiting of this variety. Better fruit was produced at Mecca and Indio, 20 miles up the same valley. The prospects of growing Deglet Noor on a commercial scale gradually began to make an appeal to Coachella Valley settlers. That's why the center of Deglet Noor production is now here, in the Coachella Valley, California.
