The Majhūl date (Arabic: تمر المجهول – tamar al-majhūl, literally, unknown, from جَهِلَ, to not know) also known as Medjool, Medjoul, or Majhool, is a large, sweet cultivated variety of date (Phoenix dactylifera) from the Tafilalt region of Morocco, also grown in the United States, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Jordan. The variety is planted both for harvesting and for landscaping.The Medjool is a distinct landrace, described as producing “large soft fruit, with orange-yellowish flesh, and a mildly rich and pleasing flavor.” Israel, with its advanced policy of water reclamation, currently owns more than 60 percent of the global Medjool market share, making it the largest exporter of Medjool dates in the world.
Medjool Dates are the fruit of the Medjool cultivar of date palm trees, scientifically known as Phoenix dactylifera.
This tree has been cultivated for thousands of years for its sweet fruit, the date, which contains a single stone, and ranges in color from red to yellow when ripe, depending on the cultivar.
Medjool Dates are often called the king of dates, due to their global availability, Medjool is also the “soft” variety of dates, in compare to dry varieties.
Dates are usually elongated in shape, up to 7 cm long and 3 cm wide, and often have a wrinkled or dehydrated apperance. Most varieties of dates available in stores are dried, but fresh dates are available in some import stores and markets in the region where dates grow. Although these trees are likely native to the region of Iraq and ancient Persia, they are now widely grown around the world, from Spain and North Africa to Mexico and the United States. A majority of dates,however, are still produced in the Middle East and exported.
