The difference between grey jujube and Tianhong jujube is:
1. Different colors. The color of grey jujube is dark gray before maturity, which is also the origin of the name of grey jujube. After maturity, the color of grey jujube is orange red. The epidermis of Hotan jujube is bright red with bright color after maturity.
2. Different shapes. Grey jujube is goose egg shaped, its size is symmetrical, the fruit is round and full, and the pulp is quite fresh green and white. Hotan jujube is generally air dried for storage and taste, so Hotan jujube looks chapped and shriveled.
Jujube is very nutritious. The content of vitamin C is among the best in fruits, and the content of vitamin P is also the top of all fruits. People praise jujube as a "natural vitamin pill". People have always regarded red dates as an excellent tonic. Red jujube is not only a delicious fruit, but also a nourishing medicine. It has the effects of strengthening tendons and bones, tonifying blood and Qi, nourishing the body and moistening the face.
People who often eat fresh dates rarely suffer from gallstones. This is because the rich vitamin C in fresh dates changes the excess cholesterol in the body into bile acids. Less cholesterol reduces the probability of stone formation.
