Yellow Barhi dates grow in long bunches attached to yellow branches and stems. The dates are small, averaging 2 to 4 centimeters in diameter and 2 to 5 centimeters in length, and have a round to oval appearance with curved, blunt ends. The date’s skin is smooth, taut, and matte, showcasing a golden yellow hue. The surface is generally solid yellow, but some small brown dots may appear, indicating continued ripening. Underneath the surface, the pale-yellow flesh is firm, slightly fibrous, and aqueous with a crunchy, succulent consistency. The flesh also encases an elongated, central brown stone, known as a pit, that is inedible and should be discarded. Yellow Barhi dates have a mild, sweet, and subtly astringent flavor. The dates will vary in taste, depending on the degree of ripeness, and generally bear fruity, coconut-like notes mixed with rich but not cloying nuances of butterscotch, cinnamon, and sugar cane. Yellow Barhi dates will eventually condense and dry if left at room temperature, developing a soft, chewy, and sticky texture. The dates are also edible in these stages and will darken into shades of amber and brown.
