After two years, those observing the holy month of Ramzan have a good choice in terms of dates. It is known that those fasting during Ramzan consume lots of dates. Due to this, the demand peaks during the Ramzan season. Post pandemic, this happens to be the first Ramzan season, and the markets are flooded with dates, much to the delight of the buyers.


There are a whole lot of varieties available for consumers, right from imported ones to locally produced ones called Pind Khajoor. The holy month of Ramzan will be starting this Sunday, and many were seen going to the markets for dates, or khajoor as they are locally known. However, many customers showed interest in buying imported dates from Iran and Iraq (Zahidi dates), the price of which ranges between Rs 70 and Rs 200 per kg. One of the traders from the old city reveals that for the past two years, people were buying from local retailers, and hence this year, they are keen on stocking up on imported varieties.


The imported dates come from Iran, Iraq, Tunisia, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Some varieties like Ajwa, known to be the king of dates, are sold at premium prices of Rs 2000 per kg. The streets of Begum Bazaar are busy thanks to all the customers rushing to buy the best varieties.


However, some customers are worried about the prices thanks to a viral video doing rounds on social media. But the traders unanimously maintain that the prices are totally customer-friendly as the market is flooded with dates.


Right now, varieties like Kimia, Shukkuri, KupKup, Khudri, Mariyum, and dates filled with dry fruit like almonds, nuts, apricots, etc., are being sold at a high price. Varieties like Mazafati, Kalmi, Mashrooq, Maghroom, and eight other varieties are being sold at Rs 400 per kilo. Meanwhile, Ajwa, which is the most premium variety grown in Saudi Arabia, is rarely available in the city.


However, smaller vendors and push-cart vendors are making huge profits by charging more than Rs 80 to 120 a kg and selling a box of 500 gm of Kimia dates for Rs 250 to 300.
