While many types of dates are grown and eaten around the world, the most popular remains the medjool date. Dark brown, sweet-fleshed dried Medjool dates are the dried fruit of the date palm tree.


Medjool dates are preferred by most people because of their large size and sweetness. The large, elongated pit, which is found the center of the date, is easy to remove.


In spite of their sugary sweetness, medjool dates are low in calories. They are also a good source of dietary fiber and are rich in minerals. While they do contain significant amounts of fruit sugar, this easily digested natural sugar actually makes them a perfect alternative to other forms of dessert.


Medjool dates are a popular addition to many baked goods, such as cookies, muffins and breads. Their unique flavor and texture aren’t just suited to desserts, however. Dried Medjool dates can be stuffed with a variety of fillings, including cream cheese, sausage, or nuts, and are often wrapped with bacon and broiled. Chopped Medjool dates make an interesting contribution to salads and can be made into a fruity sauce as a counterpoint to rich meats, poultry and game dishes as well.
