Medjool Dates – “King of Dates”

 Members Only, Ingredient Directory, Where Our Food Comes From

Today I want to share about the famous large, soft, moist, Medjool date/palm tree. I call them famous because Medjool dates are one of the top fruits used in the raw culinary world for their health benefits, natural sweetness and binding qualities in recipes.  Did you know that Medjool dates are a FRESH FRUIT? Most people think of dates as a dried fruit, but they are actually harvested from the date palm, cleaned, sorted and packaged right away. There’s no processing and they’re never physically or chemically dried. So where do they come from? How do they grow? Let's find out!
