How to choose it
The Khudry date is dark or light brown in color. Its flesh is thick and its skin is often peeling off. Quite fleshy, it is long and contains a very fine nucleus.
The Khudry date can be eaten as a snack, especially for athletes, accompanied by yogurt or cottage cheese. It goes very well with fermented milk. It can also be cooked, for example to make a spread without added sugar.
Our dry Khudry dates can be kept sheltered, in an airtight container if possible, for several months. The flesh of these dates shrinks naturally when in contact with the cold, which gives the impression of a hard date. Just leave them for a while at room temperature so that they regain their original softness.
