Hi br,

I just received my first order of dates from Bautista, on Saturday. I am also finishing my remaining dates, honey dates, from Da Vall.
From Bautista, I ordered:
Royal Treatment
The king of all samplers! Wet-pack includes Medjool, Khadrawy, Halawy, Deglet Noor, and Zahidi. Firm-pack includes Honey also.
Thus 6 date varieties are mentioned but the carton is divided into 5 sections. Maybe Zahidi is not there, I called Bautista, but it was 3:30PM and their message said theyíre open 8AM-2PM. Iíll call back tomorrow. I like the Khadrawy the most..
As with you, I also tend to not care for very sweet and rich fruit but apparently I have learned to rather like dates, of good quality.

Both Da Vall and Bautista sell at some farmerís markets in Los Angeles.
A husband and wife team sell the Da Vall dates. The wife used to sell at the smaller farmerís market near my house that I go to regularly.
Sunday, I went to the fairly large farmerís market in Encino, Los Angeles, that I used to go to regularly.. I saw Da Vall dates there and the seller turned out to be the husband. He told me that the Da Vall date farm is not certified organic but that they donít use any chemical treatments.

By the way, I always try to not give in to temptation from the processed food booths at farmerís markets.
