When it comes to healthy super fruits, dates are the fruits people sometimes overlook when planning their health routines. Omavidates makes them accessible by selling the dates they grow in California farms online and delivering them straight to people’s homes.
According to archeological evidence taken from the Sumerian civilization, dates were grown between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers before 3000 B.C., making them the world’s oldest fruit. This fruit may not always be the priority in American diets, but it is valued in other countries like Morocco. In particular, the medjool date variety was even called the king of dates because it was only served to Moroccan royalty and their guests.
The Medjool date arrived in America in the 1900s, and date plantations flourished in Arizona and California. In 1927, eleven Medjool date palms were brought from Morocco to Nevada. They were planted in Yuma, Arizona, in the 1940s, and six of those date palms are still standing and bearing fruit today.
Dates have nutritional benefits that will delight health enthusiasts. They are low in cholesterol and have natural sugars. They contain many vitamins including B1, B2, B3, A1 and C vitamins. Dates also have higher levels of antioxidants compared with other fruits. The antioxidants that can be found in them are flavonoids, carotenoids, phenolic acid, which are considered great at fighting off diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and heart disease.
Growing and harvesting Medjool dates are labor intensive, but Omavidates grows them, along with many other varieties, and makes them available to as many American consumers as possible. More information can be found at https://omavidates.com/.
