Mazafati or Mozafati (Persian: مضافتی) (also called the bam or Kimia or Black date or Jiroft date,) is a cultivar of the date. It is grown in southern Iran, mainly in Bam, Jiroft, Kahnuj (in Kerman province), Saravan, Nikshahr, Haji Abad and Iranshahr (in Sistan-o-Baluchestan province).
It is a dark, soft, fleshy and sweet date of medium size (2.5 to 4.5 cm) with relatively high moisture content of between 32-35%, varying with the time of harvest and the location of the grove. The date is suited for fresh consumption, i.e., not dried. At a temperature of −5 degrees Celsius (23 °F) it can be kept for up to 2 years or 12 months at 0-5 °C. Mazafati date harvesting time depends on the variety and starts in August, lasting to the end of October.

Typically, Mazafti dates are harvested in 3 phases. Quality may vary between a high quality date with a soft, thin texture and low quality date with a hard, dry texture. It is a low waste process – samples of waste Mazafati dates were actually found to taste just as good, if not better, and be of just as good, if not better, quality. Annually, Iran produces close to one million tons of date fruit. There are 400 different types, 50 of which are well known in international markets and are exported throughout the world. Mazafati date palms can stay in production for over 60 years.
Mazafati dates should be kept refrigerated. The main producers of the Mazafati date keep them in cold storage; however, drying out Mazafati dates to reduce moisture can help to eliminate the need for cold storage.
Dry or soft Mazafati dates can be eaten in their raw form, or may be seeded and stuffed, or chopped for use in cereals, puddings, bread, cakes, cookies, ice cream and candy bars. Since production is so high, surplus Mazafati dates are made into cubes, paste, spread, powder (date sugar) jam, jelly, juice, syrup, vinegar and alcohol.
