2016 Harvest now available. We will begin shipping in September as we hand sort the new crop. Large Grade Medjools are sweet, moist and very close to the same quality as the Jumbo dates. Approximately 20-24 dates per pound. Our dates are grown by family farmers in Yuma, Arizona and are current year crop that is hand-sorted by our crew for superior quality.
For over 60 years, Sphinx Date Co. has provided premium quality bulk dates and date gifts. Direct from Arizona farmers, our Medjool Dates are hand-sorted as we pack to make sure you receive the highest quality selection, fresh off the trees from family farmers! We feature only the current year’s crop sorted as Jumbo, Large, and Fancy dates based upon the size, skin condition and moisture. Dates are a superfood containing potassium, iron and niacin, with some protein and fiber. Very low in sodium and fat, Medjool Dates are nature's perfect treat! Read more about the Health Benefits of dates.
Medjool dates are the largest, sweetest, juiciest, cream of the crop, hand-selected just for you. Medjools have an excellent shelf life. Nature has endowed them with a high degree of moisture which ensures that they maintain their freshness for weeks at room temperature and for four to six months refrigerated. Dates freeze exceptionally well and may be kept in closed containers at 0 degrees for at least a year.
Any moisture loss can be regained by adding a little moisture to a plastic bag or other enclosed container and setting them in the sun, or briefly in a microwave to restore and to dissolve any crystallized sugar. Medjools do have a tendency to “sugar” after several months. A whitish film may appear on the surface. It can be wiped away with a damp cloth or simply dissolved with the heat treatment described above. The taste of the dates is not affected.
Please note that prices are determined each season based on market prices.

Really good dates. Review by Tom
My sister likes dates. We got her some as a gift and bought some for ourselves in a very fancy store in Dubai. They were very good. I did a large favor for my niece. She sent us some of your dates. I'm no expert on dates, but in my opinion your dates are really fantastic. Large, extremely moist and tender, and delicious!
