Dayri date is a semi-dry date from southern Iraq, named for Dayr, a place where a convent is located. Therefore it is called “The Monastery date.” It was first imported in 1913. Dayris have a strong flavor and are large and luxurious like the Medjool, but less sweet. Dayri dates are an excellent source of dietary fiber as well as potassium, protein, iron, folic acid and B-vitamins. Dayri dates are large, oblong shaped fruits with thick soft flesh surrounding a single seed. Dayri dates are dark brown to black in color and very tender, lacking the fibrous texture that some other varieties tend to have. Though not as sugary as the Medjool, but sometimes referred to as even more “date-y” in flavor, the Dayri’s modest sweetness is balanced by a somewhat earthy finish.
