Can be frozen. When kept too long, dates can dry out or saccharify. They remain edible but do not taste as good.

Quality and ripeness

While ripening, the colour changes from green to shiny brown. Fresh dates are soft and intact and do not contain any wet spots.


Dates are easy to combine with nuts such as almonds and cream cheese. They can be used for cakes and desserts but also go well with savoury dishes such as tagines (stews), curry dishes or as stuffing for fish, meat or poultry. During the ramadan month of fasting, dates are traditionally consumed at sundown during the iftar meal.

Did you know...

dates are rich in vitamin A and B, and in iron, magnesium and phosphor?
