Black dates are a firmer and chewier species of date. They are delicious eating dates that are not as sweet as some other varieties. 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 black 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.
