Date Harvest

Friday, October 30, 2009

It's the end of the harvest season and I was surprised to find a grove of dates that hadn't been picked yet.  The Coachella Valley is the largest date producing region in the United States.  And we have all kinds;  Deglet Noor, Barhi, Blondes, Brunettes, Zahadi and my favorite - Medjools.  Date trees can bear fruit for over 100 years.
