Iran is the largest producers of dates in the world. Its annual
production is about one million tons in over 400 varieties.
Iranian dates are grown, harvested and processed organically without using any
chemicals as fertilizer, pesticides or preservative. Five to six (4OGR)
nutritious and delicious Iranian dates, or 1/4 cup of diced dates, equals one
health food serving.
In Iran date harvesting time, depending to the variety, starts from August and
last to the end of October.
All 400 varieties of Iranian dates are not exportable due to limited production
of some types or being unsuitable for export. But among the 400 types more than
15 varieties are well known in international markets and are exported
throughout the world.
