30 Bananas a Day!

I'm not often located in a place where I can receive packages, and I'm afraid of running out of food especially since I usually dont have acces to a refridgerator. Also, it is extremely hard for me to keep enough ripe bananas around, etc. I think the best solution would be to buy several cases of deglet noor dates, but I have two general concerns:

1. How long will a case of deglets last UNrefridgerated? I live in a temperate climate that gets all four seasons (northeast USA.)

2. How much longer before suppliers are likely to run out of deglets? (assuming I can't count on several months' worth to last at room temp.)


I bought 30 lbs from 7hotdates and went through them in about seven weeks last time, though given that it's winter and less other food is cheaply available I bet I would go through them faster this time.

They are available year round in the states, even when the season ends there is a good supply of stored dried dates.  We keep them in the frig, they go bad after a few weeks room temperature.

Thanks for the help!

Would it be safe to order a month's supply at a time? In other words, could l count on them lasting for four weeks at room temp?


If I am able to access a freezer, how long would they last frozen?

No problem! :)  You can store them in the freezer for 5 months.  I think you should be fine for a month at room temp.

Super! Thanks again :)
That amount might last you a good deal longer; I was using them as my main calorie source. To calculate how long a certain amount will last you, figure out how either 1) how many calories you'll want from them (eg. 400 cal per day) or how many you tend to eat at a time (eg. 30 dates) then just do the math.

If you're doing it by calories, use a nutritional data site to figure out how many calories are in a pound of the variety you want to order. If you're doing it by amount of individual dates, you can find out how many tend to be in a pound in the same sites (like fitday.com etc.)

Hi Analucia, I'm in Maryland and when I've gotten 15 lbs of dates, if I didn't eat them up right away, they would last maybe 2 weeks on top of my fridge, in the box. Now when I get them I leave part of them out and put the rest in zip-loc bags in the fridge and they are much less likely to get mold, etc. and could keep a month easy, but usually I eat them up faster than that :)

I think if you are going to keep them 7 weeks or thereabouts, you should probably refrigerate part of them as soon as they arrive.

You know this time of year, you could probably keep them in zip-loc bags, or tupperware in a shady spot outside, it's like a fridge out there most of the time anyway. Only thing to watch for would be ants or other critters getting into them.

Good idea! Assuming I can keep the raccoons out :)
