Ajwa dates are a soft, luscious, and fruity date variety, with a fine texture, from Saudi Arabia. They are cultivated in Madina Tayyiba. The dried Ajwa date is a very dark brown, almost black in color, rich in many nutrients. It remains quite soft and juicy and also retains its sweet, fruity flavor. These are some of the reasons that Ajwa dates are most sought after around the world.
The taste has been described as moderately sweet and smooth, with a “melt in your mouth” quality to them.
