Hey Everyone :-))

I arrived to Tel Aviv yesterday and am already in love with this country!! 🙂 The people are so welcoming and warm, the weather is amazing and the vegan restaurant options are countless!! Thank you so much for all your recommendations on Instagram, I am literally in food heaven. 🙂

The main reason I am in Israel is to visit an organic medjool dates farm 🙂 You all know how much I love dates and it has been a long-life dream of mine to sell Caroline´s Choice dates – the best of all medjool dates. 🙂 I have been eaten thousands of medjool dates in the last couple of years and know by now which ones are the absolute best ones. 🙂 I wish you could have tasted the fresh dates today. It was a total dream come true and felt like eating pure caramel!! To me there is no better sweet alternative than dates – they are high in fibre, high in magnesium, high in Vitamin B6, high in protein and have zero fat. 🙂 That´s why I want to bring you the very best medjool dates, so you fall in love with them and will experience the same amazing benefits I have from substituting regular sweets with dates. 🙂 

Fresh organic medjool dates straight from the palm tree! 🙂 These are called “super juicy” medjools, they literally melt on your tong and taste like pure caramel.

The Farm is located in the Jordan Valley, which is 300 meter below see level. The sol is extremely rich in minerals and they use absolutely no artificial sprays or chemicals. 🙂 If I ever sell dates to you, I promise you the best quality & taste you could probably find. 🙂

I think the whole process of farming dates is really fascinating and makes me appreciate them even more now. 🙂 I really had such an exciting day today and hope you like this little insight into the date growing business. 🙂

Here you can see the different stages of a date. From right to left its getting more and more ripe. The organic dates here in Israel are all handpicked at the perfect stage of ripeness which is the 3rd on from right. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone! 🙂

xx Caroline

Hallo liebe Caroline!
I <3 your Blog!!!
Auf irgendeinem deiner Fotos habe ich mal gesehen, dass du mit einer Leica fotografierst. Welches Modell hast du? Ich brauche nämlich einen Apparat, welcher sich gut zum Reisen eignet. Machst du alle Fotos hier auf dem Blog mit deiner Leica-Cam?
Würde mich soooo über eine Antwort von dir freuen.

Hi Caroline! I was the guy sitting behind you on the BA flight asking you about the dates… hahaha what a coincidence… Im sure you miss the Tel aviv weather by now… Can you please tell me which farm you went to? as I would like to visit there too next time I go to Israel with my girl, as we are both Medjool addicts. My girl once went on a date with an Israeli, and ended up falling in love with Israeli dates! 😉

    Hi Zohar,

    funny I can´t remember telling you my name or my blog´s name. I was invited to visit the farm as we are doing business together and it´s not open for anyone to visit. However, you will soon be able to order the dates from that farm on my blog! 🙂

Hi Caroline! I love dates and buy them always in 5kg packages where I live since they are very expensive so the price can go down. When will you sell them? When I finsh my 5 kg I will buy your dates! Love from Portugal
