This type is a late-ripening date and is grown in almost all provinces. It is also a popular item for export.
Average fruit weight is 8 grams. The Zahedi date is firm, shiny, and wrinkled. Sometimes the skin sticks to the flesh and sometimes, depending on the climate, temperature and humidity, and also how much water is in the region, the skin separates from the flesh. The top of the fruit has a dark color (from a bright brown color to a dark red) and on the end, near the cap, it is buff-colored. In this type the flesh is completely separated from the seed of the fruit.
