These are fresh Dates.

These are fresh Dates. 
Dates are a type of sweet fruit that grows on palm trees. 
They have been cultivated since approximately 6000 B.C.
Dates are a good source of energy. Also Dates are also a food source of fiber. Dates also contain a good amount of minerals, including potassium, copper, sulfur, iron and magnesium. Dates are a particularly good source of calcium, which helps promote strong teeth and bones.
Fresh dates have a somewhat lower percentage of sugar because the contain more moisture than dried dates, and the sugar in dried dates is more concentrated, but fresh dates are still a good source of carbohydrates.
