Sorry, this item is out of stock
The Medjoul date is the king of dates. They’re soft, succulent, sizeable, and rich with natural caramel flavours. Naturally high in fibre and potassium, they’re an ideal gourmet toffee-treat for a burst of sweetness at any time of day.
These Zaytoun Medjoul dates are grown by members of a fair trade co-operative in the Jericho area of Palestine, which has the ideal climate for growing dates. The growers have been harvesting dates for generations, their livelihoods entwined with the roots of the date trees.

From the home of the olive tree, Zaytoun found its feet in 2004 as a community interest company, providing support to reams of olive growers in Palestine.
Zaytoun sprung from a love of good food – and was initially funded by hundreds of olive oil enthusiasts who gave advance payments for an ethical, wholesome, and artisanal oil that’d offer them that feel-good feeling when splashing it on a salad, or making food for their loved ones. Zaytoun has expanded massively since then, and now prides itself on building real, living connections between countless Palestinian olive growers and the foodies who know good quality when they taste it.
- Great tasting soft and succulent dates
- Medjoul dates sourced through the Palm Farmers fair trade co-operative in Palestine
The Zaytoun dates are sourced through the Palm Farmers Cooperative and are a vital source of income in this area which is seeing vast tracts of land confiscated by Israel. The cooperative has around 65 members, who are all dedicated to producing very high quality medjoul dates, to organic farming and environment protection.
In the past the farmers sold sell their dates below cost price and even had to give them away for fear of them rotting before being consumed. Through Zaytoun the cooperative are able to export the bulk of their produce for a fair price.
