Jujubes dry nicely and easily. I'm a little surprised yours fermented, but
I suppose that would happen if the air isn't dry and there's not great
Having grown up across the Chattahoochee River from Robert, on the Alabama side, I can attest to the fact that the air is NEVER dry in Atlanta - or certainly not anytime between March and December.


I do like them dried' and use them as one would dates. I
actually prefer them to dates. Saw some in our coop for almost $7 a pound.
They're good, but not $7/lb good. If I had that kind of money I'd save up
to buy a gallon of gas...

Hey all,

I have been eating my stash of Jujubes. I few of them
have been past their prime. They are soft and some
have a sour vinegar taste. I think the tate is kind
of nice, but I it makes me wonder if they are really
safe. I dont see any mold on them , and I havent
gotten sick yet. I guess I eat my Medlars in the same
condition. Should I be concerned? When is fruit (in
general) over ripe for consumption?
