Synonyms: Samani, Samiani, Rashedi
Meaning: Said to be named for a village (Poponoe 1913)
History: Introduced from Egypt in 1925 by Mason, Samany was regarded as one of the best dates of Lower Egypt although it was confined to just two localities, Edku and Rashid (Rosetta) (Mason 1915). Samany is a large, soft date, attractive in appearance in the khalal or early rutab stages, but disappointing in the later stages of ripening at which most of the fruit would be consumed in the United States.
