Deglet Dates

Deglet dates, also called Deglet Noor or Deglet Nour dates, are a variety of dates that have been cultivated in Tunisia for thousands of years. Light in color and slightly transparent (you can see the seed through the skin and flesh when you hold the date to the light), this date’s name translates to “fingers of light.” High in vitamins, minerals and nutrients, it are delicate in flavor with a subtle sweetness and a hint of nuttiness. Its texture is a bit dry when compared to the popular Medjool date.
