This is a fruit that is eaten in Lebanon when it is in season; its flesh is crunchy and its taste similar to an apple. It has been introduced in the US, mainly in California, but so far, is only known by a few people.
It has 20 times the amount of Vitamin C of citrus fruits! Most of the amino acids and minerals required by the body! Apparently it has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
I predict we will be seeing more of this fruit, known as ennabe in Lebanese and jujube or Chinese date in English.
