What are Dates?
Dates grow from palm trees of the same name. Their Latin name, dactylifera, is derived from the Greek word for "finger," thanks to the fruits' distinct elongated shape. Date palms are native to the Iraqi soil, though are now naturalized throughout the world. An ancient fruit, they have been cultivated historically as far back as ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. In fact, evidence has discovered that they have been eaten since 4000 B.C., and have been in existence for over 50 million years!
Dates have long stood as a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine. With their positively juicy texture and mouth-watering sweetness, enjoy Piping Rock's natural and fresh dates on their own or in a plethora of dishes, from desserts and breads to side dishes and more!
