ORGANIC DATES, Medjool, whole, large
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Phoenix dactylifera
Production: Dates are, by general consensus, the world’s oldest known fruit. They have been grown throughout the Middle East and North Africa for over 6,000 years, a dietary staple and incorporated into almost every meal or eaten alone. Ancient cultures referred to date palms as “the tree of life”. Traditionally, dates were used to break fasts as they have high carbohydrate and sugar contents, immediately raising blood sugars and providing instantaneous energy. Medjool dates are one of the largest dates and considered far superior to any other type of date in terms of flavor and texture.
Qualities: One of the most popular and versatile dried fruits, dates are an endless source of nutrients and an excellent sugar alternative. Chewy and sweet, they are packed with fiber (a ½ cup of dates is approximately 22% of daily fiber intake) and potassium, magnesium, and manganese.
Common Use: Dates are excellent in both sweet and savory dishes. Try making your own energy balls, or in a salad with walnuts, Gorgonzola, and date pieces.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a well sealed container.

So soft and fresh. What an incredible company. Responsibly sourced, impeccable quality, fast shipping and customer service response. I have been ordering herbs, mushrooms and food from this company for at least a year bow and am never tempted to look anywhere else for any reason. Thank you again for another solid order delivered and very much enjoyed
Moist and delicious!
These dates are so addictive! Sometimes I have a craving for a sweet snack or a quick and easy dessert after dinner. I will take a couple of them and slice them in half from top to bottom. Then I stuff them each with a raw organic walnut or 2-3 raw organic almonds each. Press them shut with my fingers, which is easy because of the natural sugars making them sticky. I enjoy them with a hot cup of organic homemade peppermint tea. The combination of sweet, nutty and refreshing peppermint really hits the spot. Plus peppermint is a great help with digestion after meals. Dates are also packed with nutrition and healthy fiber! Very satisfying! Thank you E.O.! Wonderful customer service as well!
