These giant Jujube Dates (Da Hong Zao/大红枣) are specially sourced from the Xinjiang Province, in China near Mongolia and the Middle East. Being a desert, the climate here is very hot and dry.
The Chinese name ‘Da Hong Zao’ translates to Big Red Dates as this variety of red dates can grow 2-3 times larger than the average Hong Zao - even bigger than a chicken egg!
This fruit is a delicious treat and much more spongey than the typical variety of Hong Zao.
Jujube dates are red in colour and have a crisp skin with soft, juicy flesh that is delightfully sweet; however, be careful of the stone in the middle!
They can be used in a number of culinary dishes.
Alternatively, the dates can be placed in hot water and rehydrated for a juicer fruit. The water can also be drunk for a warming herbal tea.
