Medjool Dates

Medjool dates are natives of Morocco, the jewels of the date world, tasting of caramel and honey,   A dessert date, Medjools were saved for royalty and special guests. They are a soft date that comes in the ripeness stage known as tamar (ripe, sun-dried). A connoisseur suggests simply letting the date melt on you tongue without chewing for a few minutes to appreciate its flavors.   In 1920 when a blight threatened their palms the Chariff sent 11 palms to the Bard Valley in CA to ensure the lineage -  their offspring now supply the US dates.
