History of the Medjool Date

The MEDJOOL DATE has often been referred to as the "perfect date." A relatively recent importa­tion, the Medjool got its start in the United States from a eleven offshoots, secured in 1927 from the Boudenib Oasis in French Morocco by Dr. Walter T. Swingle of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Once one of the choicest dates in the Mediterranean area, the Medjool Date has now all but disappeared from the Mediterranean market due to the ravages of the dreaded Baioudh disease. It had been especially prized in Spain and, for centuries after the Arab occupation, Spaniards sent carefully packed boxes of Medjools to their friends as Christmas gifts.

The Medjool might have been lost to the world forever were if not for Dr. Swingle's timely importation. The offshoots, which he brought to the U.S., were thought to be disease-free and were planted for a number of years in an isolated quarantine station at South Point, Nevada. They were later moved to the U.S. Government Experiment Station in Indio, CA.

So, from this small start the entire supply of Medjool palms in this country was developed. Currently, these dates are grown here at Oasis Date Gardens.

Natural Sugaring

Sugared Rhutab Medjool DatesDates can experience a “sugar bloom” similar to raisins. This happens when sugar within the fruit migrates through osmosis from inside to the outside causing white specs on the surface. You can revert the sugar back into the dates easily. Just soak your date fruit in hot water or your favorite milk. Soaking the dates returns lost moisture to the fruit and softens the flesh, leaving them with the same super-sweet flavor!

What you see: Creamy specs, white snowy dots
What it is: Sugar!
Eat or toss: Eat and enjoy
