JUJUBE Ziziphus jujuba
Also known as Chinese dates the jujube is a small deciduous tree or shrub reaching a height of 5–10 m, usually with thorny branches. Fruits are oval 1.5–3-cm in size, when immature they are smooth-green, with the consistency and taste of an apple maturing dark red to purplish-black and eventually wrinkling to look similar to a date. There is a single hard stone similar to an olive stone.
Weed Warning - Trees do tend to sucker from their roots around the tree and these suckers are spiny and can be a nuisance.Other Names: Red date, Chinese date, Korean date, Indian date
