Dates, Barhi String

Dates, Barhi String

These are two strings of barhi dates that have not fully ripened.  In this (khalaal) stage they are a Middle Eastern delicacy.  They are sweet and crunchy, with a slight astringent after taste.  Some of the dates in the photo are beginning to ripen into the next stage.  Each date contains a single short, fat seed. We have not seen them sold in stores.  These veganically grown dates were ordered directly from the grower, The Date People, P. O. Box 808, Niland, California 92257.  We could not find any specific nutritional information for barhi dates.  For general nutritional information about dates, we suggest you look at the charts we have published with our presentation of Deglet and Medjool dates.
