Jujube (red date also known as Chinese date, Korean date or Indian date) has been an important fruit in Korea, used as a snack and traditional medicine. The freshly harvested ones are usually eaten as medicine rather than fruits to alleviate stress or to prevent aging. However, eating too many unripe jujubes can make you sick! Dried jujubes are more popular in Korea used to make teas, snacks, jam and ginseng chicken soup(“samgyetang”).
