History Of Medjool Dates- from Zaradates.com
Among the Medjool's many nicknames, "king of dates" is most fitting. Once reserved for royalty and their guests, they were a precious confection and remain so today. Like many delicacies, Medjool are pricey because their cultivation is a complex and labor-intensive process.
Medjool dates are a staple source of nutrition because of their high carbohydrate content, high potassium levels and easy portability. A date or two is a delicious snack, a healthy breakfast or the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee.
