What do fresh dates taste like?

Fresh dates do not taste as sweet as ripe dates. This is because date palm fruits accumulate most of their sugar during the Khalal (color) stage, when fresh white dates become brown. Their moisture content also decreases. Ripe dates are large, extremely sweet, and good sources of dietary potassium.
