The Organic Fresh Rhutab Medjool stage is the second edible stage of Medjool Dates, at which the fruit is delicate, translucent, moist, and very juicy with a luxurious melt in your mouth texture.
This fresh and succulent version of the King Medjool will delight your senses with a fudgy, caramel-flavored pulp, so exquisitely soft and chewy. Not to mention the smooth, golden brown exterior to intrigue your eyes and pique your curiosity.
Natural Sugaring – Dates can experience a “sugar bloom” similar to raisins. This happens when sugar within the fruit migrates through osmosis from the inside to the outside causing white specs on the surface. You can revert the sugar back into the dates easily. Just soak your date fruit in hot water or your favorite milk. Soaking the dates returns lost moisture to the fruit and softens the flesh, leaving them with the same super-sweet flavor!
What you see: Creamy specs, white snowy dots
What it is: Sugar!
Eat or toss:Eat and enjoy
We recommend storing the fruit in cool refrigerated to frozen temperatures. If kept frozen, this fruit has a shelf life of up to 12 months.
