Buy dates in organic quality: Discover the treasure of the desert.

Mankind has been eating dates - since time immemorial. Scientific evidence of this goes back about 4000 years into the past. In ancient times, the date palm was revered as a symbol of immortality - and apparently not without good reason: researchers have found 2000-year-old date seeds in Israel and made them germinate.

The date palms that grew from these seeds are amazing proof of how long the date's seeds can survive unharmed. This, in turn, shows how important the fruit and its quality have always been to us humans. Why is this so? Are we a race of people with a sweet tooth? Those with a sweet tooth who accepted dates as a means of payment in ancient Mesopotamia and who now also buy dates online?

Dates are a real luxury food and yet so much more than just a little treat. The so-called "bread of the desert" is extremely nutritious: This is ensured by the high proportion of dietary fiber and natural fructose. In addition, dates contain a large amount of various valuable ingredients: they offer plenty of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Fresh dates contain important nutrients

It's not for nothing that dates are known as the "bread of the desert", as the fruit has been proven to be a versatile source of nutrients. On average, the fruit is made up of the following components:

  • 20 percent water
  • 60 to 70 percent sugar of which:
  • Glucose (25 percent)
  • Fructose (25 percent)
  • sucrose (15 percent)
  • hardly any protein (2 percent)
  • virtually no fat (0.5 percent)
  • 6 to 8 percent dietary fiber
  • 1.8 percent minerals these include
  • potassium
  • Iron
  • Zinc

Depending on the degree of ripeness, date variety and origin, these values may vary slightly.

Conveniently order diverse varieties of dates online

We at NaraFood travel ourselves to the gardens and plantations of our farmers in the various growing regions to be able to offer dates of the best organic quality. In our online store you can order many different varieties of fresh dates online.

Date varieties

There are a total of between 100-300 different date varieties on the market - if you add up all the varieties found in nature, this number is much higher. Date varieties differ in many ways: the three main characteristics are appearance, taste and consistency. However, depending on the time of harvest, the fruits of one variety can also be very different, especially in terms of consistency. Therefore, we offer some varieties in different versions - we call these semi-dry, fresh and Super Fresh. You can buy dates in our store in dried form, as well as order fresh dates.

Among our wide selection of about 15 different types of dates, you'll find fruits with a wide variety of flavors and textures, so you can shop for dates to suit your taste. If you like sweet, fruity dates with soft, juicy flesh, our Medjool Organic Dates or Mazafati Organic Dates are a good choice. If dates are usually too sweet and you prefer a firm-to-the-bite, slightly drier flesh, then you should definitely try our Ajwa and Anbara varieties. These two old, Arabic varieties have a fine, mild sweetness.

Currently, you can buy the following date varieties in our store:

Fresh or dried?

In our online store we offer dates in three different ripening stages: semi-dry, fresh and super fresh. The semi-dry dates are allowed to ripen on the palm tree for a longer period of time and lose a large part of their moisture during this time due to the effects of the sun and hot desert winds. The fresh dates, on the other hand, are harvested while still juicy and are stored in a cool place immediately after harvesting. Finally, the cooling process is not interrupted until delivery. This way, we can ensure that the dates retain their juicy texture and fleshiness. Since fresh dates are not dried, they have a significantly higher water content. This ensures a creamy-soft flesh and the full-bodied taste. If you buy fresh dates and want to store them for a longer period of time, we therefore recommend that you continue to store the dates in a cool place in order to maintain this quality over the long term. Learn more about the optimal storage of fresh dates in our blog.

Fresh dates are versatile and their use is by no means exhausted in sweet dishes. They are excellent for salads or can enrich a fruit smoothie with another flavor note. We ourselves also like to use dates in savory dishes. For example, the juicy Medjool date tastes wonderful in a Mediterranean couscous salad. The slightly harder, small Rabbi date is wonderful as a sweet addition to a savory casserole, slowly softening and gradually adding a subtle sweetness to the dish.

Date palms: Wizards of the desert

Date palms are survival artists. They are excellently adapted to the difficult conditions in the desert and can even cope with salt water as irrigation. They coax from the nutrient-poor soil and dry air an amazingly sweet fruit that is rich in content and juicy - a little explosion of different flavors in your mouth! How do the palms do it?

Date palms grow slowly and bear their first fruit only after 5 to 6 years or even later. On the other hand, the palms can live up to 100 years and give us up to 100 kilograms of dates in one season at harvest time! For thousands of years people have been cultivating date palms; hundreds of different species have been created. Therefore, nowadays you can find dates in different colors and shapes, dates each with its own form of composition, with individual aroma and consistency. Just as the oasis enriches the desert, each variety of date enriches our diet in its own unique way - and, like an oasis, invites us to spend time lingering, dreaming and enjoying...
