Jujube's are available in summer.
Somewhat pear-shaped or round and just about the size of a golf ball, the small jujube resembles a large yellowish apple covered with a rather hardy skin. This fruit varies from light yellow-green to an almost light shade of kelly green. Inside is a hard kernel, inedible pointed seeds and a rather pithy acidic pulp. Its unique texture is almost like a succulent caramel. This crisp little fruit charmer offers its very own lively flavor that is quite different from any other.
This rare fruit is rich in vitamin C.
Usually this fruit is candied but may be enjoyed fresh. Stew in honey or sugar syrup. Make a jujube cake or cookies. Add jujubes to sautéed vegetables for an unusual sweet twist. Substitute dried jujubes for raisins or dates. Wine can even be made from jujubes. To store, refrigerate.
In China, this special fruit is popular dried or preserved in syrup. Its juice was formerly used for making lozenges to help alleviate chest pain. Because of this, the word "jujube" acquired the meaning of "a confection, sweetmeat, or medicated lozenge, round, oblong, or square in shape," as quoted in Law's Grocers' Manual of c 1895 explaining, however, that these said jujubes are made with gum Arabic or other gums, not made with the actual jujube fruits.
Thought to be native to Syria and China, jujubes are primarily grown in China. Produced on an ornamental small thorny tree, this fruit loves a dry and mild climate. Being able to survive in cooler temperatures, it grows in Mediterranean countries and has since biblical times. Chinese gardeners developed the small fruit until it became superior and dessert quality. Loving life in both hemispheres, jujubes are now cultivated in Japan, Iran and Afghanistan. They remain a favorite in the Mediterranean. Jujube trees now love life in the United States and thrive in California, Florida and the southwestern region. Other names for this fruit are Chinese date and tsao.
