Fresh dates are in full bloom at farmers markets throughout Southern California, according to Robert Wemischner, a professional baking instructor at LA Trade Technical College: "Caramel, spice, citrus flavors. They're amazing and there are so many varieties." Laura Avery also catches up with farmer Christina Kelso to learn how Barhi, Medjool and Khadrawi dates are being grown and harvested at Flying Disc Ranch in the Coachella Valley.
