Have you recently walked down the iconic Palm Walk and wondered what was in the net bags on the date palms? Those net bags tied around the fruit bunches high up in the crowns of the date palms are full of delicious Medjool date fruit. The bagged fruit bunches will be cut down as the dates ripen in Sept/Oct.
Dates will be sold farmers market style from bulk harvest trays at $5 per pound. Drop by one of two date sales locations this fall and get a free date sample during the ASU Arboretum Date Harvest. There will be limited amounts of premium quality first-harvest Palm Walk Medjool dates and Phoenix’s own heritage dates, the Black Sphinx, sold in one pound containers for $8.
