Jujubes, also known as Chinese dates, are a delicious and nutritious fruit that has been cultivated for over 4,000 years. Fresh, organic jujubes can be very difficult to find in stores, but now they’re available directly from Melissa’s! The fruit we select for this exclusive offering is organically grown in the Cuyama Valley in Santa Barbara County, CA.

Jujubes can be multi-colored and may vary in hue from light green to reddish-brown to dark brown, and will wrinkle as they ripen, much like a passion fruit. A thin, edible skin surrounds a delicious white flesh, which is crisp like an apple and has a mildly sweet flavor.

Jujubes are usually eaten raw after they’ve ripened, but can also be cooked into desserts and baked goods. When dried, they can be used in place of raisins or dried figs.

Melissa's jujubes should be stored in the refrigerator for maximum freshness.
