[NAFEX] JuUubes

Jujube fruit do not like humidity during the last stages of ripening and will crack even if it has been dry and you get a rain around ripening time. There are cultivars that have less trouble with this than others such as Abbeville, and Silverhill/Tigertooth but they are not as sweet as some. It seems from a purely antidotal viewpoint that the sweeter cultivars have more problems with cracking in high humidity. I am aware of no remedy. But the fruit are good even if they crack for processing or drying.

  Does anyone know why the skin on jujubes has splits and 
  cracks about the time they start turning from green to yellow,
  and to brown and if there is a remedy?
