Dates, Medjool

The medjool dates in the full size photo are about 2 times actual size.  To us, these are one of the finest eating dates available.  The medjool dates come from Southern California.  They are sold in major supermarkets.  We purchase ours from our co-op at about $3.50 per pound.

Medjool dates come with pits, some of which we’ve planted to grow our own ornamental date palm trees (see photo-left: Medjool Date Palm Tree).  See the nutritional information below.
