Located in the southern California desert, the Coachella Valley region is home to our Caramel Naturel date palms. Because the region provides optimum growing conditions for Medjool dates and other date varieties, it is known as the “Medjool Center of the World” and produces 75% of all dates grown in the United States. With high temperatures, low humidity, and abundant water sources to supply the palm’s roots, the Coachella Valley is the perfect environment for the date palm to flourish. Prior to the building of modern dams, excessive flooding was common in the region. This fortified the soil in the Coachella Valley with the precise nutrients needed to grow the palms that produce our exceptionally healthy and flavorful fruit. These ideal growing conditions make Caramel Naturel dates superior in quality and richness to those grown anywhere else in the world.
