The 'Sugar Cane' Jujube has a medium, somewhat oval mahogany colored fruit which ripens in mid to late September here in North Carolina. The fruits have a crisp apple-like texture and are incredibly sweet. They can be eaten fresh, as well as dried, candied, or made into breads, and are used in many Asian cuisines. The tree is showy with glossy leaves. Jujube is easy to grow and has no pests to speak of: it is a less care, no spray plant.
