The Mazafati date fruit or kurma mazafati bam is a plant species of the Palmacea family called Phoenix dactylifera. This type of date has large, dark violet, fleshy, and tasty fruits. Its best-quality type, which is mostly rise in the city of Bam (one of the tropical cities of Iran), has a thin, delicate texture, and its poor quality is a thick, dry skin that easily separates from flesh and doesn’t have a desirable quality.
The kurma mazafati harvest in Iran is in late August, and it will last until mid-October. Currently, these dates are sold with the Kimiaroz and Gilda brand in Iran and international markets.
