Drop the artificial sweets - say hello to your new healthy treat:
delicious dates fresh from the farm, 100% raw and pesticide-free 🌴
Did you know there are more than a thousand date varieties? So it’s almost impossible to not find your favorite ones.
One of our employees actually thought for years that she doesn’t like the taste dates - until she started to work with Jurassic Fruit and discovered all the options to find the best date variety
The taste of a date can have all kinds of sweet flavors like the sweet and tender date Deglet, one of the most popular dates in Europe! You can also try the beloved Medjool which reminds of chestnut cream. And do you know the less known but incredibly delicious Sukkari Soft which reminds of an almond cookie?
You can have fresh dates with the most creamy texture, even so soft you can just spread it on a raw bread or cake. But there are also really dry dates, chewy and firm, perfect to take with you on a trip - and then there are the soft dates in between.
Some varieties are perfect as a snack, some are more easy to blend and thus great for your vegan pastries and smoothies with exotic fruit.
Dates are also the perfect sweetener for your raw cake created with some delicious nuts and dried fruits, or as the sweet ingredient for your homemade vegan almond or oat milk!
Dates are very popular for their health benefits and as a great tool to lose weight. With only around 29kCal per piece, dates provide you with numerous nutrients while avoiding cravings for artificial sweets!
They’re rich in carbohydrates and fibers which makes them a great satiator and studies have shown their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immunostimulant potential.
Dates provide you with essential nutrients like potassium, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B and can help to regulate digestion.
You can enjoy those health benefits already by only eating 2-3 dates a day!
To provide you with the best quality dates Jurassic Fruit carefully chooses the most trustworthy producers to import dates from. They need to share our vision of sustainable agriculture and that’s why we only offer organic dates or dates of comparable quality!
This is why our dates are ethically grown by trusted farmers from several countries, including Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Israel and Iran.
What counts for us is to
find the best varieties for you (did you know that no country produces more delicious Deglet than Algeria and Tunisia?) in organic quality or guaranteed pesticide-free
work with nice farmers who share our values and want to contribute to a better world!
They do not dry other than on the plant by the desert wind.
The dates on the outside of the bunch dry first because of the hot desert wind, the dates inside the bunches remain soft for longer.
The bunches are harvested whole and the dates are sorted according to their degree of drying.
There are several maturities for dates:
Fresh date: generally immature, still yellow or red according to the variety. Those dates are either cooked immaturely or left to ripen to become brown, juicy like a fresh fruit and melting, but also very fragile
Ripe-juicy date: the date has ripened on the plant and is harvested soft, melting and almost juicy. This is what Jurassic Fruit offers under the name "juicy" or "gold" or "tender" date
Ripe date: the date is firm, no longer juicy but not hard
Dry date: These dates are chewy and rather hard
To prevent all the valuable nutrients in the fresh dates and provide you with the most natural date quality, we ensure that they are not heated, artificially preserved or sugared like conventional ones.
Now you know a lot about dates and I bet you’re curious to try!
At Jurassic Fruit you can buy online your dates by variety or treat yourself with dates in a bundle to compare different ones! And of course, we also offer date gift sets, the perfect christmas or birthday gift to every health enthusiast and fruit lover.
