The HONEY DATE is one of the few production varieties that was popularized from a seedling started in the Coachella Valley. Similar to the Barhi, it is very creamy, with a soft, sweet texture akin to a caramel. Like Empress, Honey Dates originate from a Deglet Noor seedling that E.K. Davall planted on his property near Cathedral City, California, in 1916 or 1917.
Although Davall sold his property and original plantings, he had previously started a new garden about a half-mile to the north and had transferred his best seedling palms there, including Honey. Davall had about 12 acres with at least 50 palms in production in 1955.
Presently only, about 90 palms of this variety exist in about 4 date gardens. Now, we grow this variety here at Oasis Date Gardens.
