Mail order Medjool Dates
- jonathan sibley Jan 12, 2000 09:54 AM
I happened to be searching for dates (the edible kind, and I'm not a cannibal) on the web and realized that there are many sources. Any recommendations of good sources or places to avoid?
Btw, there are so many mail-order sources and web sites for food products, that I think it would be interesting to have a thread or section (if enough traffic to warrant it) documenting good sources we have all found. Just a thought.
Upping the ante a bit, does anyone know a source, mail order or otherwise of dates called something like bardhi or bardi? Sahadi used to carry them for a brief period each year but recently they have not had them. The explanation I got was that the trees are all dying. These are the comice pears of the date world, soft, rounded and luscious. Any thoughts?

Here is a site with info about date types: http://www.californiadates.org/variet...
Here is one source of Barhi (or Barhee) dates:
I don't know if they are particularly good or bad
And here is a page that has links to date shippers:
I guess we can try some and compare notes. Of course they are available in many stores (I'm in NJ), but I thought they might be better coming direct from the source.
