About Barhi String Dates:

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.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
