Storage: Organic medjool dates are a preservative-free, raw product, high in sugar and moisture. In winter sometimes the dates can start to crystallise and may have a white sugary appearance—but they are fine to eat! In summer, higher temperatures can cause the moisture and the sugar in the fruit to react (starting the fermentation process). So overall to get the best from your dates, we highly recommend refrigeration throughout the year.
