Description

Medjool dates are plump and cylindrical in shape. The skin is glossy and tender with a maple-brown hue, and the meaty amber-colored pulp offers a chewy texture and candy-like sweetness with hints of caramel, honey, and cinnamon. Encased in the meaty pulp is a single elongated pit, which is removed before consumption.
