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!

Black Sphinx Dates are still harvested from trees from the original Arcadia ranch, now a residential neighborhood. 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. We are proud to offer Black Sphinx Dates for the past 60 years. Read more about our history here.
