First Impression About Finding Young Dates

Discovering new things is fun. Unexpected impressions create new taste sensations that we have never felt before.

First time buying young dates through online shopping.

The dates we consume are generally ripe dates that have dried up. Of course, that's normal. But what is unusual is the young dates. That's why I became super excited when I welcomed the arrival of the young dates that I had purchased from online orders.

I am so happy with my purchase. The young dates I received looked so beautiful when photographed. So that's no reason for me not to share it with you guys at HIVE. I hope you guys enjoyed my photography of young dates this time.

Incidentally, there is an online shop that sells dates. It is located in MEDAN city, not so far from my city. So it will reduce my worries about the estimated travel time to deliver the dates to my house.

Young dates are delivered in a box. To save less than $1 on shipping, I don't take instant shipping for one day. I used a two-day total delivery.

Here we can see that the average condition of the fruit is still fresh even though it is in the box for two days. Indeed, there are some dates that look not in good condition, and some even tend to rot. But it doesn't matter to me. It taught me a lesson to take instant delivery the next time I order dates again.




YELLOW YOUNG DATES

On the seller's page called ”Syurga Kurma” there are two types of young dates for sale. We can choose red or yellow. At that time, I bought yellow young dates.

The total price is $5.6 or around IDR 79,000 for a total weight of 250 grams. I think this is quite affordable because it is a product that is imported directly from the Middle East region. So, we need a minimum of 8 days to preorder. But the estimated time to arrive at the airport can go forward or backward because it is adjusted to the date of the date harvest.

THE TEXTURE

The texture of young dates is hard and tends to be crunchy. The inside is not soft like a ripe apple. The inside is white. Has seeds as in ripe dates in general.

If you're looking for a similar texture, it's the texture of a crunchy apple, not an overripe apple.

So when you bite a young date, you will hear a crunchy texture that is really like fresh fruit in general. But, how about the taste?

THE TASTE

With a crunchy texture, young dates carry a sweet taste with a slight tartness, similar to sapodilla fruit. As for the fiber, it doesn't taste because the overall texture of the fruit is still hard.




THE HEALTH BENERFITS

Young dates have many health benefits, as well as dates in general that have been ripe and dried. But young dates are very popularly used as a support for pregnancy programs.

Various content of young dates such as antioxidants, iron, and fiber are believed to be beneficial for fertility for both women and men.


In addition, young dates are also useful for improving digestion and increasing the body's immune system.

I am very happy to be able to taste fresh young dates directly. And I will buy these young dates again if they are available at the date shop.

My first impressions of these young yellow dates were quite good and I thank God for creating this beneficial fruit for life.




Have you ever seen or even eaten young dates before? How do you respond?

I haven't tasted young dates yet, what I have tasted was the ripe one. I like the taste of it but I have only eaten once when my friend's husband arrived from abroad (Middel East). I haven't seen and touched young dates yet. Hope I can hold it soon.

Thanks for this piece of information @anggreklestari!

Dear @anggreklestari, sorry to jump in a bit off topic but may I ask you to support the HiveBuzz proposal?
It recently lost its funding, is struggling to get back above the HBD stabilizer proposal, and is in dire need of help.
You can support it on Peakd, Ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner.

On behalf of The HiveBuzz team, thank you!

I've already tasted the dates but the sweetened and dried ones. My cousin from the middle east gave it to me. Can young dates also be set aside and wait for them to ripen?

Young dates start getting popular in Thailand as well. We can grow them here too. I love the sweetness and the crunch from them. 😀
