Black Dates



Black Dates are a type of date fruit that is native to the Middle East and North Africa. They are small, dark-colored, and have a sweet, chewy texture. They are often used in Middle Eastern and North African cuisine, and are a popular ingredient in desserts, such as date pudding and date cake. They are also used to make date syrup, which is used as a sweetener in many dishes. Black Dates are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are a good source of energy.
