We specialize in growing dates for you, the individual. We don't wholesale any of our dates. You get the very best that we have, not the wholesalers!

Dates are a sweet snack alternative for health conscious consumers. Low in fat and sodium, they contain no cholesterol, and are high in fiber and magnesium. Dates contain more potassium than a banana, and are rich in iron! They are so good for you, yet they taste like candy... nature's candy!

Considered sacred in ancient times, dates were mentioned more than 50 times in the Bible. Dates are the oldest fruit cultivated by man, and there are over thirty known varieties. Here in Dateland, we grow eight of those varieties, but some of them are available in such a limited quantity that we don't offer them on the web site. If the dates you are looking for are not listed, just give us a call, and we will be glad to ship them if they are available.

Through our website, we offer Traditional Medjools, Jumbo Medjools, Choice Medjools, Cooking Medjools, Khadrawy Dates, Halawi Dates, Thoory Dates and variety boxes of dates. We also have Date Nut Rolls and Date Coconut Rolls.

Our specialty, the Medjool Date, is considered to be the very finest date grown in the world. Because of their fragile nature, everything must be done by hand. They demand an incredible amount of work throughout the year. Grown exclusively for royalty in ancient times, our Medjool Dates will delight even the most discriminating connoisseur.

Dateland Date Gardens also sells beautiful Date Palm Trees. We can provide you with our expertise on cultivating your new tree.

  • An oasis in the desert as we cycled our bicycles from Fortuna Foothills. We were so grateful for the air conditioning in the shop, the ice cream was a generous serving and pizza delicious. I expect...

  • Must have a pit stop here if you are passing through. ( Tucson to Sandiego road trip via Dateland & Yuma ). Around 170 miles from Tucson and one hour odd before hitting Yuma. Best place to beat the heat and to have tasty , delicious date shakes and date icecreams. They are mouth watering. Parking available. Cheers.
  • Had a shake. It was good. Not much in dates so had a strawberry shake. Nice and thick but have had better shakes.
