Red Dates (Ziziphus jujube)
Red Dates, also known as jujube fruit, can be eaten fresh, raw or infused into tea to gain their health-promoting properties. Similar to an olive, the fresh jujube fruit has the texture and crisp, bright flavour of an apple. In traditional medicine, the fruit, seeds and bark of jujube have been used to treat anxiety and insomnia, as well as an appetite stimulant and digestive aid. Red dates are loaded with energy, essential vitamins and minerals.
