Dates are seasonal fruits (but available all year round). To store them for a longer time, you must first determine how long you want to store them. If you want to keep dates longer than six months, then freezing (-18 C) is the best option. If you plan to consume them within six months, put them in the refrigerator. If you are like us and eat the dates immediately the moment you get them, we recommend an airtight box. Dates can be stored perfectly up to 45 days at room temperature, without refrigeration or freezer.
