Medjool dates are a variety of dates enjoyed for their natural sweetness. They're larger, darker, and more caramel-like in taste than other common types like Deglet Noor. As tropical stone fruits, they have a single pit surrounded by edible flesh

Medjool dates are high in calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid, protein, carbohydrates, natural sugars & fiber, and healthy fats. They are Jumbo Natural Soft and Juicy. These dates are heart-healthy and are great for an anti-anemic diet. Often used for the treatment of infertility, preventing abdominal diseases, fighting parasites in the body, as well as constipation. Not only are they said to ease anxiety, but they also lessen the chance of stroke. Eating dates, during & after pregnancy, can improve blood circulation for both the mother & baby and is helpful for milk production if nursing.

Fresh, these dates are sweet, succulent, meaty & plump - also known as Rutab. I describe the flavor as that of "roasted honey" & brown sugar. Dried, they are purplish to black in color with tinges of red. Softer in texture than many other varieties of dates, they have a bit higher water content when dried. Flavor notes of honey & caramel - some even say a nuance of chocolate. Such a treat!

Amazing by themselves, as snacks fresh or dried, wonderful for desserts, as well as smoothies, add them to your baking recipes, even to stuffings.
