Synonyms: Thuri, Tsuri, Thauri
Meaning: “The Bull’s Date” (Popenoe 1913)
History: Although Swingle introduced Thoory, a dry date, form Algeria in 1900, the commercial plantings can be traced to a few offshoots that accompanied large Deglet Noor importations that Bernard Johnson brought in 1912. By 1946, there were about 580 Thoory palms in California’s Coachella and Imperial Valleys and only a few in Arizona’s Salt River Valley, where they had been confused with another, inferior dry date, Mesh Degla.
