The Khalal stage is ONLY harvested in August. It is the first edible stage of Barhi Dates, at which the fruit reaches maximum weight and size and has low moisture making the fruit crispy, sweet, with a bright yellow color.
The taste of yellow Barhi dates has often been compared to apples, coconut, and sugarcane. Experience the subtly sweet and fresh flavors with each crunchy bite of this wholesome snack in its early Khalal stage.
Khalal Barhi dates are attached to their vine, and over time turn a brownish color as they ripen, becoming soft and chewy with a thin crisp outer skin. We recommend storing the fruit in cool refrigerated temperatures.
