September through January
Dates are hand-picked off the Date Palm. They are pesticide free and pollinated, picked, cleaned, and packed by hand. Dates all ripen in four stages, known in Arabic as kimri (unripe), khalal (full-size, crunchy), rutab (ripe, soft), tamr (ripe, sun-dried).
Dates have many health benefits-- they are high in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.
Fresh dates are versatile and can be served fresh or cooked. Dates pair well with sweet and savory flavors, goat and sheep's milk cheeses, bacon and sausage as well as fresh fruits.
Date Palms are native to North Africa and the Middle East, and have been grown and harvested for thousands of years.
