30 Bananas a Day!

They are on sale at http://www.medjooldatesales.com/store.htm, $40 for 11 pounds (I already have about 3lbs. in my fridge). Will they last for a couple months in the refrigerator? (Don't know when they were picked.)

Medjools are a high moisture content variety; wouldn't want to bite into a moldy one, ewww!

They can last up to 3-4 months in my experience, depending on the variety. You can also deseed and freeze half of that batch and use it in your smoothies instead of ice cubes.


Bon appetit :)  

Oh yeah... good idea :D



*shudder* Those awful black inside ones have put me off dates in the past

Yeah, me too. Primarily for the reason of checking for larvae, but wouldn't want to bite into a black either!

$35 for 15 pounds plus shipping, they are good and chemical free:


Hey there gals! Are both of these companies fresh, raw dates??? I didn't think we could still get them!?! Are they organic too?? Of so I am placing an order!!!! I have been trying to find some fresh ones, that have not been dried or tampered with!!!

Actually, this is the first time I'm ordering from http://www.medjooldatesales.com/store.htm, so I'll let you know about the freshness when I get them. I don't think they are organic though, unfortunately. I'm ordering from them based on a recommendation from a fellow fruit connoisseur (someone else on 30bad).

I normally order from Bautista, but they're out of stock until next season I presume.

I think the companies who still have them in stock pick them and store them somehow since the season is over. Apparently some varieties last longer than other.

they aren't organic but they say they grow them chemical free and always have, both my husband and I are very sensitive to chemicals and like these.  You can read about how they grow on their website, our story.

Oh, darn I already placed my order. Not to worry though... I see much more date ordering in my future :D

I'll order from them next time.


2.33 per pound when you buy 45 pounds. Daym.

I heard the promotional dates are extremely hard though, which is why they're cheap. Someone on this forum site had to open them with a knife so they don't break off their nails.


But I think rock solid dates are better than no dates at all, soaking them would probably work. Time to buy extremely cheap dates! :D

Dang.. I wish I didn't live so far away.. shipping adds $43 dollars!! :((
Ya, I read several different people's experience with them, 2 good and one bad so I took the chance and was pleased, I've gotten 2 orders so far, both were 2, 15 pound boxes and all good.  They are not as moist as bautista's were but they are good, delish, soft enough, chemical free, make great datorade, (I don't even soak my dates), and the price is right.  I don't believe you can get the moister ones anywhere this time of year.
