The Jujube is classed with the raisin, date and fig as a pectoral fruit and can be eaten fresh or dried. The fruit varies in size depending on the cultivar with a thin, edible, dark red skin surrounding a crisp white flesh. At the centre of the flesh is a small seed (pip). The fruit has a pleasant sweet taste and the texture and flavour resembles more an apple/pear than a date. They can be processed in various ways such as fresh, dried, candy, jam, pulp and wine.
Jujubes are extremely hardy and tolerate saline soils which make it a highly adaptable crop well suited to a range of climatic condition.
