Safawi dates are a soft, moist variety of dates that mainly grow in Saudi Arabia in the Al-Madina region. Safawi dates are characteristically identified by their particular deep black with a red hue colour and consist of medium and long fruits. The Safawi date resembles the Ajwa date, however the crispier skin and slightly alongated shape diffrentiates it from Ajwa. There is a high demand for this date throughout the year. These dried dates are delicious and soft.
