The ones you got were probably Li or Lang, which the Chinese consider 
only suitable for preserving (cooking in sugar syrup and drying).  
Other varieties are sweeter and better to eat fresh.

I found fresh jujube for sale at an asian grocery store in Seattle for 
$2.60
per pound.  I had never eaten these before, so I bought a bag.  Not 
what I
expected.  They are a little crisp, not much juice with almost no 
flavor.
Pleasant, but not very exciting.  They are slowly turning from light 
yellow
to brown, and I think they are improving.  Maybe they need to get brown 
all
over before I will like them.  Is this the typical fresh jujube 
experience,
or did I get a bad batch?
