Azil Organic Piarom Dates
Piarom dates, also known as Maryami dates or ‘chocolate dates’, are arguably one of the most delicious semi-dried varieties of dates in the world. Piarom dates are unique in taste and appearance and are considered one of the most expensive varieties of date as their production is not in large quantities and there are very few areas in Iran which can yield this kind of high grade date.
Iranian Piarom dates are long, slender, oval dates, with thin skin and almost black in color. They are around 3-5cm in size (larger than other date varieties), and are considered semi-dried due to their low moisture content of less than 15%, lower than other varieties of dates.
