Fresh Dates

Irene | Sep 5, 2001 01:00 PM

I bought some fresh dates today from the vendor who sells fruits and vegetables from a cart on the street. I'd only seen them on date palms in the caribbean.
Even though he insisted they were ripe, I can't tell if they are. They're crunchy, nutty tasting, and not very juicy.
Are they ripe? If not, how do I ripen and store/keep them?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
