Dates are one of, if not the sweetest fruits in the world. If you have never had a date, they are worth trying just for how sweet they taste. Their texture is so soft and their flavor is very caramel-like. It’s OK if they are wrinkled, but you don’t want them to be hard. They should be plump, with a slight glossiness to their skin. Avoid the ones that have crystallized sugar on their skins. It’s perhaps the one fruit that should be eaten alone, and just enjoyed one at a time as they scrumptiously go into your mouth.
