The Instacart guide to jujube berries

About jujube berries

Jujube berries have been cultivated in China for more than 4,000 years, where the fruit is known as tsao or Chinese dates. These berries are also cultivated in the Middle East, India, and North Africa. In Iran and India, jujube berries are known as ber. In Arabian countries, they're called ennab or nbeg.

You may be most familiar with jujube candy, but these are not at all similar to these fruits. The candies originally contained jujube juice but no longer have any jujube ingredients in them. Instead of going for these sugary candies, you might try the flavorful and healthy alternative that is fresh jujube fruit. You don't have to leave the house to try this fruit, thanks to Instacart. Just set up your account online or via the app, and you can order all your favorite fruits for home delivery!

Jujube berries grow on flowering shrubs. The berries are often green or brown in color when they're picked. As they ripen, they become purple or dark red in color. The berries are small and round, measuring about 0.6 to 1.2 inches, with a hard kernel in the center that contains two seeds.

You can eat jujube berries at any point in the ripening process. As they get darker, they'll also get sweeter. Green jujube berries have a flavor that's similar to green apples. Ripe, red jujubes taste more like dates. These berries are crisp and flavorful at any point.
