Madinah dates are good for the soul.
Known as the ‘Holy Date', Ajwa dates have long held a special place within Arab tradition. With its sweet taste and raisin-like texture, this unique super fruit has been consumed in the Arabian peninsula for thousands of years, with some mentions tracing the date back as far as 4000 BC.
This super fruit, native to Madinah, Saudi Arabia, has been a famous natural remedy for civilizations throughout history. Repeatedly mentioned in the Quran and in prophetic medicine practice, Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) recommended a daily dose of the date in order to lead a healthy lifestyle, which has been scientifically proven today.
Ajwa dates are semi-soft, delicious, and packed with nutrients. With each mouthful, you will be consuming a high level of vitamins and antioxidants; improving digestive health, and boosting heart health, all while enjoying the sweet, creamy ﬂavour of this delicious superfood.
Safawi dates are native to the Madinah region in Saudi Arabia and botanically known as Phoenix dactylifera. Classified as a semi-dry date, they are known for their soft, luscious texture, and refreshing sweetness. Renowned for their vast health benefits, it is no surprise that these dates have been used medicinally for hundreds of years.
Unlike most other date varieties, the Safawi palm tree is prized for its productivity, making Safawi dates more commercially available all year round. They come as medium-sized, cylindrical dates with a dark black cherry color and hints of brown.
Dates come wrapped and ready to give. The wrapping is handmade paper with a geometric print.
