The Sex Life Of The Date

In Indio, California just off Highway 111 is Shields Date Garden. They are all about dates and the Coachella Valley grows 90% of the world’s dates according to a post in Conde Naste Traveler. If you happen to visit Shields, you can purchase dates and other date products and watch a short film about the sex life of the date. One thing I would recommend you try, especially if you are there on a hot day, is their date shake. A delicious milk shake made with their special ingredient, date crystals, and the usual vanilla ice cream and milk. Or if you like it in a more solid form, date ice cream. And, according to the previous mentioned post in Conde Naste Traveler, the date shake is the unofficial drink of Palm Springs.

    Love it. Never thought dates were my thing, but that shake actually does sound good.

      It is fun to visit places and know some of the local lore. They have an amazing assortment of dates. I did not know that Coachella Valley grew most of the world’s dates. I think this part of the desert is very scenic, too. 🙂
