Jujubes, Organic and Biodynamic
In Season: October and November
We only have a few of these trees planted along the edges of the Grove, and we have to restrain ourselves from eating them as we walk by each morning. Crunchy and sweet like the best Fuji apples, but much lower in acidity. We pick them when they're brown and plump, before they dry and wrinkle up. Perfect for tossing into a picnic lunch and eating out of hand, just watch out for the pit inside!
Since some of you have asked, "what's the deal with Jujubes candy then?" We remember getting that candy stuck to our teeth when we were kids, but were surprised to find out that the recipe goes back to the 1700's and used to include real jujube fruit.
STORING FRUIT: We defer to the experts at the University of California Davis when we recommend storing all of our fruit at room temperature (around 70 degrees Fahrenheit) because refrigerator temperatures (usually 38-42 degrees) can damage them and/or prevent them from ripening to their best flavor and texture. Place produce in an open bowl or on a countertop out of direct sunlight to prevent produce from becoming too warm. Once cut or prepared, all fruits should be refrigerated promptly. Obviously, use all fruits and herbs within a few days since longer storage can result in loss of freshness and flavor.
Our Passion & Our Promise — Growing and creating the highest quality produce and products. All Natural. No Additives. No Preservatives. No GMOs. Ever.
SHIPPING: We hand pick our jujubes to order and ship only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays to arrive within 3 days of dispatch, in order to maintain optimal freshness.
