JUJUBE (Plant)

Jujube, Indian Jujube or Chinese Date (red date), are names for 2 species of a small thorny evergreen tree of the genus Ziziphus and also for its fruit. 

The common jujube or Chinese Date (Ziziphus jujuba) has been widely cultivated in China for over 4,000 years. The small reddish fruit is eaten fresh or stewed, but is more commonly dried or candied.

The Indian Jujube (Ziziphus mauritiana) is smaller and not as sweet as the Chinese Date.
