Do You Know that America Exports Date Fruits?

I thought that date fruits come from certain countries in Asia, Middle East and Africa only. The fact that the following top 10 countries produce dates are from these regions. They are:

01) Egypt, yearly production 1.1 million tons
02) Iran, yearly production 0.95 million tons
03) Saudi Arabia, yearly production 0.84 million tons
04) Iraq, yearly production 0.68 million tons
05) Pakistan, yearly production 0.56 million tons
06) United Arab Emirat, yearly production 0.53 million tons
07) Algeria, yearly production 0.49 million tons
08) Sudan, yearly production 0.44 million tons
09) South Sudan, yearly production 0.43 million tons
10) Oman, yearly production 0.24 million tons

Dates sold in Walmart

Quite lately, I knew that America produces date fruits too. Date trees are growing well in some hot places such as Southern Florida, Southern California and Arizona.

California produced 35 thousand tons (70 million pounds) of dates, around 90% of dates in America.

Production quite small compared to top 10 countries date production. However, it is surprising that America export date fruit to several countries.

Where? What countries are importing date fruits from USA? America exports date fruits to the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.

Total export in 2017 to 2018 was 21.8 million pounds with value US$ 67.1 million (Euro 60 million or Pound Sterling 52 million).

We are shopping date fruits from California recently. They are sold in groceries such as Walmart. Price quite reasonable, US$ 4 per-pound (almost half kg).

Have you tasted date fruits?

  6. I did not expect that the American country would become an importer of dates.

    It turns out that the American weather climate can also grow dates.

    2. Yes, it is true.

      It's also surprising if the weather climate in America is able to fertilize palm trees and become one of the largest importing countries in the world

  14. Juicy dates are delicious and considered a very healthy sweet alternative to sugar. They appear most commonly in our shops here in Blighty around Christmas time in neat little oblong boxes with a central stick for harpooning the fruit. What a faff - I just pick them out with my fingers and eat them straight away!

  22. Dates are wonderful fruit... and when I lived out west, I remember purchasing some from a nook in a valley just outside Death Valley, a true oasis with water and date trees surrounded by a barren landscape
