Medjoul Dates

A great source of energy, a perfect workout snack! The Medjoul dates are grown in the district of the city of Jericho an ancient city of over 10,000 years. The constant sunshine, rich alluvial soil, and abundant water from the spring made Jericho an ideal place for growing Medjoul dates. What really makes these dried wonders so special is that they are exceptionally large, contain a large amount of “fruit meat,” and are sweet. Despite their sweetness, they only contain about 66 calories each, are a good source of fibre and contain high levels of potassium, magnesium, copper and manganese.

Medjool dates can be added to cookies, muffins or tarts. Their sweet taste and texture aren’t just suited to desserts, but can provide great contrast with savoury flavours. Can be stuffed with cream cheese, sausage, or nuts. Alternately, chopped dates can be added to green salads.

Our Medjoul Dates have been hand sorted and packaged by the Women’s cooperative, therefore provided 85 working days in packaging alone to the Palestinian Women.
