LIndsay Culclassure has recommended Shield's in the past.  Not sure of their current stock

Awwwww. I was thinking the same thing.. Hoping someone knew bout this. Oh well, there is sooo much fresh fruit now, I think we can survive :) I did get some from my health food store and even on amazon... I talked to the company and they say they are raw... but I'm not sure the company is 'United with Earth'.http://www.amazon.com/United-Earth-Organic-16-Ounce-Containers/dp/B...

Not sure if  ^that ^ is gonna work??? But you can just go to amazon and type in dates and they come up.... Anyone here know if they are aw and fresh really?????

I got the same ones from Amazon! :) I PLOWED through all 4 packs, so I can definitely vouch for the yummyness-factor... but I'm not sure just how fresh they really are. Compared to all the supermarket brands I've tried though, these won by a landslide.
Last I checked, they have 15 lb boxes of Bahri, Zahidi, and Kadrawy. (Go to their website and click on 'Promotions'.) I just received my first shipment of Zahidi dates from Shield's. Definitely not as good as the Bautista family's, but still not bad dates. Mine are moist but have kind of a weird texture, somewhat rubbery. It's not noticeable if I soak them and put them in a smoothie though.

Bautista dates will be back at the end of August.  Until then I have ordered three 15# cases of Khadrawy from Shields and am very happy with them.  With shipping it's about $3.40 a pound for me while on special.  They aren't certified organic but do grow them chemical free as you can see when you read their story on their website.



Oh yeah and I've tested them, they are raw.  Put a piece in Hydrogen Peroxide and if it bubbles, it's raw.
September-October in Arizona/California

Recently I have been ordering organic Zahidi dates from medjooldates.com.


You can get an 11 lb box for only $29 plus shipping and they are sweet and moist. I'm actually eating them right now, and I'd have to say that these are probably my favorite of all the dates I've tried so far.


I had previously ordered the 4-variety sampler, but the medjool dates were a bit dry and did not compare to the ones grown at Bautista farms.  The other dates (dayri and halawi) in the sampler were OK but I'm just not a big fan of those varieties.

Here is the link to their 'Organic Date Varieties' page:





I do not know whether or not they are steamed.  Please let us know once they send their reply.

Excellent--thank you so much!

I just ordered these organic dayri dates, with shipping it comes to $3.72/lb.  Never tried this variety before.  We'll see!



Can you reask it differently, by any chance?


You asked about how hot it gets, but would you mind asking if they *steam* them, directly? I assume what they are saying is they sun dry them...but I'm not so sure. What does "ripen" them mean? I mean, obviously they'd ripen in the sun...;P
