The KHADRAWY DATE is one of the first dates to ripen in the Coachella Valley and it is distinguished by its mahogany colored, soft, melting flesh. Offshoots of the Khadrawy variety were first imported in 1902 from Basra, Iraq. The importation of 1913 provided material for commercial plantings.
Khadrawy plantings are more widely distributed in this country than those of any other imported variety. In 1946, there were 183 acres in California and an estimated 105 acres in Arizona. The Khadrawy is an important variety in southern Iraq, comprising about 8 percent of the palm population in the Basra region.
Currently, this variety is grown here at Oasis Date Gardens.
