Date Varieties growing on our farm

 Barhi Dates

The Barhi is the prominent variety on our farm - The Barhi is a very soft date that is oval in shape and extremely sweet.This little known date is starting to make a name for itself, each year more Barhi dates are sold than the year before, generally the average Australian would think of dates of being eaten in the Rutab (sem dry & moist) stage. Its success can be attributed to a unique trait that most dates don't have, the Barhi is edible in the Khalal (fresh & crunchy) stage and the Rutab stage.
