Does the color vary or should it always be the same?
The color of the Medjool is generally a dark rich color, but it does vary from amber to dark depending on the soil conditions of the fields.
Should Medjool Dates be stored in the refrigerator?
We do recommend storing the Medjool Dates in the refrigerator if you will be keeping them for a period of time. It helps to hold the moisture and this holds the flavor.
What is the shelf life of the Medjool Dates?
As a rule we estimate 45 days at room temperature; 6 months refrigerated; and 1 year frozen. The Medjool Dates will not necessarily go bad at room temperature, but they will tend to dry out.
What is the harvest season for Medjool Dates?
We harvest from approximately August through October and continue packing throughout most of the year. We strive to supply our Medjool Dates year round.
Are the Medjool Dates bad if they have a white crystal on the skin?
With Medjool Dates, when they start to dry out the sugar will move to the surface of the date and appear as a crystal powdery substance. A damp paper towel will remove the sugar and re-moisten the date. Also, heating the Medjool Dates will remove or absorb the sugar.
We don’t use herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers on the farm. Our compost consist of palm trimmings, leaves, branches and sticks mixed with water.
