Deglet Noor (or Daglet Nour) dates are some of the best dates in the world in terms of quality and taste. They have a distinct light brown/gold color, but it's their sweet taste and texture that set them apart from other dates.
Tunisia is one of the world’s largest producers of Deglet Nour dates. They are mainly grown in the Djerid and Nefzaoua regions that are located on the edge of the Sahara and also around the oasis of Tozeur, Kebili and Tamerza.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Deglet Nour cultivar is classified as the main date category according to its export value.
Dates harvesting usually begins in early fall, but fluctuates depending on rainfall. In fact, if rain falls down during the last days of summer, this means that there will be excellent crops.
Every year, hundreds of people meet up in the palm groves to begin hand harvesting. In Tunisia, date harvesting is a very important event that is celebrated with a festival in the city of Kebili, for over 30 years. The Festival of Dates is a key event in Southern Tunisia, and annually hosts thousands of visitors who come from all parts of the world.
