mystery fruiting tree

    8 responses

guyekj starts with ...
I am a property photographer and I come across a lot of fruit trees that have an abundance of fruit and no one to pick them. So I often get a lot of free fruit.
Came across this tree today and can't find any info on what it is or if its edible.
The fruit are about the size of a date or big olive. Reddish brown in color. The older fruit has begun to get wrinkled. The fruit when broken open smells "fruity", has the consistency of a drier date. The pit looks like a date/olive pit, elongated. Any help? Thanks!

JUJUBE FOR SALE IN MELBOURNE says...
Hi Guyekj

it is a Chinese date/Jujube tree where it fruits can be eaten out of hand, dried fruits can be added to cereal, can be cooked the same way as sultanas and adding to boiling water to make tea. I was told tea made from jujube leaves help to loose weight (?)

Pick the dried wrinkly ones, they are the sweetest, you can snack on them while driving around in your car, lucky you. Mine are small, but produce a good crop of fruit. No fruit fly? they are a fruit fly magnet.

I am currently in a coastal town in Montenegro and a lot of fresh jujube are sold at the markets. Here the fruit is called žižula.

First time I have tasted it, to me it is similar to apple. I'd like to try it dried.
