Welcome back to Date with the Dates, our informative series of the different types of dates grown here at Peace Wadi. Today we will explore the Khadrawi variety.
This type of dates comes from Iraq. Khadrawi dates are medium size fruits with medium sweetness and cannot be eaten before it’s either Rotob stage (half ripe stage) or Tamar stage (ripe stage). It has a very much “toffee” flavour and butterscratch texture. That makes them ideal for making excellent date paste to cook different home sweets. It is also very good for dates molasses and syrup. Khadrawi dates are an excellent source of dietary fiber, folic acid, iron, potassium, protein and B-vitamins.
Their thin papery skin has a tendency to dry out, so keep them tightly wrapped and refrigerated in an airtight container.
In the farm, we have around 30 Khadrawi dates trees. We currently sell the first rotob Khadrawi of the season freshly picked. They are so creamy and delicious, we are waiting for you !
