Fresh dates should be plump and glossy. Some dried varieties exhibit a dusting of sugar crystals on the surface that can be mistaken for mold. Sugar on or just under the skin does not indicate inferior quality. Dates are a significant source of fiber, antioxidants and potassium. Dried dates typically contain about 70% more calories than fresh dates due to increased sugar content, but calories vary widely depending on variety and size.
