It's pretty special if the name of a variety is used as a brand name. That is exactly what happened to the Medjool date, the gold standard for quality in the market. Some even call it the ‘king of the dates’. Medjool dates are extremely sweet and have tender flesh. The taste is reminiscent of honey and the texture is similar to caramel. You eat the fruit skin and all, without the stone.

Dates are exotic fruits with a centuries-long history, dating back to Greek and Roman times. Did you know that the date is the fruit that naturally contains the most sugar? Make sure the Medjool dates have reached the right stage of ripeness. Dates that are not perfectly ripe can still be eaten, but the honey-like sweetness has not yet fully developed.


Dates are used in many dishes with a Middle Eastern origin. They are often combined with spicy and salty flavours. But they make a perfect taste sensation with Dutch or French cream cheese. And a classic dish: dates in a salad.


Slice the EAT ME Medjool date in half to remove the stone. Then slice the fruit into pieces and use in the recipe of your choice, or stuff the date.
