How to store Medjool Dates?
You can store Medjool Dates in many ways. Always keep them in a closed container so they don’t dry out. In room temperature they keep 1-2 months, in the fridge 6-10 months and deep freeze more than a year. It is allowed to re- freeze dates because of the low active water content and therefore low bacterial activity in the Dates.
Anyway trust yourself and your nose when deciding if the dates are still good or not.
Medjool dates are the fruits of the “Phoenix dactylifera” which is the date palm tree. There are many varieties belonging to this family. The most familiar varieties are Deglet Nour, Medjool and Halawi. The Medjool dates variety became very popular because of its intense sweet taste, large size and soft juicy texture.
The Medjool is also called Medjoul, Madjhul, Medjul. Sometimes we hear exotic names as “King of Dates”, The “Date of the Kings”, Jumbo Dates, and so forth, they are all refer to the Medjool Dates.
Medjool Dates are growing in hot, dry climates. There are large commercial plantations in Israel, Jordan Valley, Palestinian Authority, USA- California, Mexico, South Africa, Namibia, Morocco, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia.
buy-bio.eu imports the dates from Jordan Valley which is between the dead sea and the sea of Gaillilee. Why from there? The Jordan Valley Medjool dates have a special quality: they are darker, softer, juicier compare to other origins. Do you want to learn more about the social aspects of our dates? Read more here
Each year the trees give one harvest. Harvest time for the Northern Hemisphere is between September to November, and in the Southern Hemisphere between March and May.
Medjool dates are sorted into sizes, which is determined by grams per fruit and sorted according to skin separation- the amount that the skin is loose from the date fruit-meat.
This quality sorting is purely optical. That means that all the export dates are actually the same regarding internal quality, freshness, taste, texture etc. Sometimes high skin separation looks like the date is “dried out” however the exact opposite is correct. High skin separation is usually a symptom of very juicy moist date.
So more expensive dates (larger with low skin separation) are not tastier or better than smaller dates with higher skin separation.
