India jujube receives much attention in India, where many cultivars have been explored. Depending on the various cultivars, it can be round, oval or oblong. The immature jujube is green, ripens to yellowish-green. It will turn fully brown or red when mature and starts to wrinkle when over-ripes.
It can be eaten whole, minus the single stone, at any of the ripening stages. Crisp, mildly sweet to astringent when green to yellow but soft, sweet and mealy when it ripens. It is usually smaller and not as sweet as the common(Chinese) jujubes.
