Jumbo Medjool dates are the largest, sweetest, juiciest, cream of the crop, hand-selected just for you. Medjools have an excellent shelf life. Nature has endowed them with a high degree of moisture which ensures that they maintain their freshness for weeks at room temperature and for four to six months refrigerated. Dates freeze exceptionally well and may be kept in closed containers at 0 degrees for at least a year.
Any moisture loss can be regained by adding a little moisture to a plastic bag or other enclosed container and setting them in the sun, or briefly in a microwave to restore and to dissolve any crystallized sugar. Medjools do have a tendency to “sugar” after several months. A whitish film may appear on the surface. It can be wiped away with a damp cloth or simply dissolved with the heat treatment described above. The taste of the dates is not affected.
Please note that prices are determined each season based on market prices.

Best dates ever Review by Date lover
These dates are the best on the market anywhere in the world. Jumbo size, moist, & sweet, my family could not stop eating them. Worth the price if you buy in bulk (10lb or 15lb). (Posted on 5/26/2015)
