We are proud to offer Black Sphinx Dates for the past 60 years. In fact, our business was named after this local delicacy when founded back in the 1950's! Packaged in one pound aerated containers with moisture control. Refrigerate upon arrival.
This hybrid date spontaneously appeared during the 1920's in the early date farming days of Phoenix. Smaller, sweeter, with a thinner skin than Medjool Dates, Black Sphinx Dates are only found in Arizona, primarily in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. Black Sphinx have been identified as an Ark of Taste food by Slow Food USA. The Ark of Taste program includes over 200 delicious foods that are at risk of extinction. There are presently less than 200 trees producing these dates for the marketplace.

Best dates ever Review by Barb
When I was a kid in Phoenix my father would bring home big sprays of these dates from where people had gotten their trees trimmed and hang them up in the back yard to ripen. They are literally the best dates I've ever eaten and I would love to have some again -- sadly, I always seem to hit this site when they are out of stock. (Posted on 6/27/2015)
