Jujube Nutrients and Health Benefits

In this article I’d like to introduce you to a research I did on a fruit called Jujube, binomially speaking Ziziphus zizyphus. Other names which people refer to this Jujube fruit are Jujuba, Red Date, Korean Date, Indian Date, or Chinese Date. Be advised that this is not the typical date fruit which grows on a palm tree, but if you would like to know more about those other dates, then read my older article called Dates Fruit Nutrients and Health Benefits.

The Jujube tree is considered to be a small tree even though it grows up to 10 meters (or almost 33 feet) high. It has thorny branches and it’s usually grown for shading purposes. If you expect your Jujube tree to provide lots of good fruits make sure to plant it in a hot sunny place and with sufficient water source.

Jujube fruit can be enjoyed raw as it is, dried, smoked, canned, pickled, or juiced. People eat these fruits in different kinds of ways like with tea, with pickles, as a jam, or as a snack by themselves. Before you decide to try some Jujube let’s look at its nutrients and benefits. So, 100 grams of Raw Jujube contains:

- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B1, Thiamin
- Vitamin B2, Riboflavin

- Vitamin C (Extreme Amount)
- Protein
- Calcium
- Iron
