Medjool dates are deep amber-brown and have a slightly crinkly skin that shimmers from natural sugar crystals. Bite into one, and your teeth sink into satisfyingly sticky flesh that tastes of rich caramel, hints of wild honey and a touch of cinnamon. Melt-in-your-mouth Medjools are so luscious they taste as if they have been warmed in an oven.
The King of California Dates!
The Empress is considered a mid-season ripening variety. The orange-yellow fruit stalks are exceptionally heavy. Fruits are large, oblong, somewhat pointed at the apical end, and may retain dry, light buff or straw color areas at the base. The fruit color goes from yellow, amber, to reddish brown. Empress dates have a soft flesh with a classic and balanced flavor, not too sweet and not too strong. They are firm and chewy.
With a beautiful ruby hue, honey dates have a soft, creamy and deeply sweet flesh. They have a melt-in-your-mouth quality that is to die for!
