The Arizona State University date harvest returns this fall. ASU grows and harvests the dates on the Polytechnic and Tempe campuses.
Sun Devils can expect up to 30 varieties as the dates ripen throughout the harvest season. The 2019 season marks the first full harvest of the Medjool dates from the new palms on Palm Walk.
Dates can be purchased for $5 per pound. Proceeds help fund the Arboretum Volunteer Program, plant signage, new garden construction and the purchase of tools and plants for the Arboretum.
