The freshly harvested Jujube, also locally known as Phutsa, is a small round fruit with edible skin. The texture of the flesh is a cross between an apple and a pear, with a subtle sweetness in taste. Jujube is a good source of Vitamine C, calcium and phosphorus which can help improve the immune system and strenghten the bones.
