The Dates

Del Rey Farms grows "Coachella's Best"™ Organic Dates on acres and acres of pristine palms under the sun of the Coachella Valley.  Date palms love the sunny and dry climate of the area just east of Palm Springs. 

In fact, the Coachella Valley exports 90% of dates sold across the country.  The most popular varietals grown locally are the Medjool and the Deglet Noor. 

Del Rey's organic medjools are large with a good chew.  They are best eaten straight out of your hand, but are wonderful additions to raw and cooked recipes. 

Dates are a powerhouse of nutrition in a tiny, sweet packet.  

  • The are a good source of fiber. 
  • All natural sugars. 
  • 6 B Vitamins
  • 7 Minerals
