Safawi dates are grown in Saudi Arabia in the region of Madinah and botanically known as Phoenix dactylifera. There are three classifications of dates; dry, semi-dry and soft, Safawi dates are of the semi-dry type. The Safawi palm tree is prized for productivity, making Safawi dates more commercially available than many other date varieties. Dates have been eaten for centuries for their medicinal properties. It is even believed that eating Safawi dates on an empty stomach will kill stomach worms.
