monatta, when it's time to break the fast…i eat soooooo much….i couldn't even walk with my big stomach bwahahahah :D

 

kidding lol :D

 

yup in here there r only available dried…still there r also the fresh one but very3 rare n hard to find…n also more expensive… i had tasted the fresh dates when my dad had came back from performing hajj two years ago….n also the one sold in my country…. i don't know why it's a bit different  ^^ ... maybe the dates that my dad had brought back is fresher than the imported one :p

 

nah…i prefer dried dates :D

 

 

uff yeah i hope that u can introduce us with more type of dates available in your country

 

:p

I think we should ask who doesn't know it ? Dates is a lovely fruit:) in Hungarian we call it 'datolya' ('ly' = 'j')

casiol  .  I hope you can perform hajj  soon , and eat the fresh dates in makkah and maddinah  .  

 

and about the types there are many  , the dates of maddinah and makkah are different from the dates which planet in my twon   , hence , the names are also different . 

 

I live in eastern region of saudi arabia ,  in town called Al Hsa    ,  some kinds of  frish dates here are yallow  ,  red , brown ,light green and some kinds are pink  .

 so , enjoy it  Nu pogodi  . Wink

 

casiol  ,

very good job what your dad have ,  he is realy lucky .Smile

 

and about the light green . 

one kind of date does not change its color when it is fully developed  . but you be sure it is good to be eaten when you find a part of it becomes  light brown  .
