The fruit changes from green to brownish colour as they ripen. Choose fruit that is firm and free of blemishes or bruises.

To Store

Once fully ripened, store at room temperature for up to 5 days. Candied jujubes can last in jars for around 3 months.

To Prepare

The ripe fruit is mostly consumed raw. Prepare a candied version by pricking and immersing the unripe jujube in a sugar solution and marinating it for a few weeks.
