Back to My Lists


At this time this post was made, I had a very active jujube tree on my property. The fruits are wonderful, but I’ve found the upkeep to be a bit more involved than some sites lead one to believe. Supposedly, in my part of the country, bugs are not a problem for this tree. Wrong! Well, maybe they are not a problem for the tree itself, but they love to eat the fruit, as do the birds. Anyway, the reason for this post is two-fold. One is to save information about the fruit so that I can answers the inevitable questions (e.g. Is the fruit safe to eat? Isn’t jujube a candy?), and the other is to store a few recipes.
