What are Jube Jubes?

Jube jubes (also called jujubes) are a fruit that’s similar to apples and comes from China. The jujube fruit is a bright red and is sometimes also called a Chinese date. It originally comes from Southern Asia and has now become popular all over the world.

The fruit has a sweet taste and a chewy texture. They’re often dried and used as candy in some parts of Asia. However, they’re also used in alternative medicine. The fruit can help improve sleep and decrease anxiety in humans.

When the jujubes are dried, the sugar in the fruit becomes more concentrated. Additional may sugar may also be added during the processing of the dried fruit.
