Mazafati Date is a well-known variety of date famous for its sweat, delicious, soft, fleshy meat, and bright, black skin. In some regions, it is known as Mazafati Rutab, which refers to the third stage in the ripening of a date.
The Rutab stage is when the date has reached its full size, but it has more water than sugar.
The other three stages include Kimri, Khalal/bisr and Tamer, respectively.

At Kimri stage, the date is still tiny and green.
At Khalal or bisr stage, date makes its rapid growth to reach its full size. Its color changes from green to red/yellow, depending on the variety.
Tamer is the fully ripen date. It is recognized by a lusciously soft, juicy meat covered with a thin, black or brown skin. The dried date is also called Tamer.
Note: dates are bought and consumes at any of these stages.
