Dates. Popular in Greece, although the date palms that famously grow along the beach at Vai, and elsewhere on Crete, Amorgos, Chalki and Anafi and near Epidaurus are Phoenix theophrasti, spindly and not as good as the classic cultivated Arabian dates, although some people eat them.

Χουρμάδες αποξηραμένοι are dried dates.
