Jujube

Category

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.
Other Names: red date, Chinese date, Korean date, or Indian date

Seedlings plants can be used to graft other varieties onto or grown on for fruiting your own unique variety. Also known as Chinese dates the jujube is a small deciduous tree or shrub reaching a height of 10m usually with thorny branches. Fruits are oval 1.5-3cm 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. In the dry tropics, trees can adversely affect agricultural land by forming dense thorny thickets. Best not to cultivate soil around Jujube roots to encourage suckering. Collect all fruit to prevent birds spreading seed. They make great container plants and this helps to mininimise suckering. Cross pollinate for best results.
