About Thoory Dates


Thoory means “The bull's date”. Thoory date fruit is often referred to as the "bread date" because of their firm, pastry-like texture. This dry, organic date has a semi-sweet, peanut-like, nutty flavor similar to cashews. These fresh dates are California grown!






Thoory Dates originated in Fougala, about 25 miles southwest of Biskra, Algeria.

The THOORY DATE was introduced in 1900 from Fougala, about 25 miles southwest of Biskra, Algeria. The variety is said to have originated at Tolga near Fougala, a date-growing center at the border of the Sahara, south of the Atlas Mountains.

However, most of the Thoory palms in commercial plantings are apparently traceable to a few off-shoots obtained later along with the large Deglet Noor importations. In 1946, there were about 580 Thoory palms in the Coachella and Imperial Valleys.

Today, we grow Thoory here at Oasis Date Gardens.
