In our garden is a very rare tree producing very rare mahogany coloured oval fruits known as jujube or zinzel in Maltese.

Unlike the date, the fresh crispy ones taste even better than the soft crinkly fruit when it ripens.

How can I describe the flavor? It is like eating the sweetest tasting apple with a caramel undertone. This is the jujube, the Korean, Chinese or Indian date …. a pop-in-the-mouth morsel full of flavor.
A very unusual fruit and quite delicious, yet I find I am unable to eat too many…. In Texas Jujube has become very trendy recently and is being cultivated and sold as a dried health food.
