A healthy and beautiful tree for your garden

If you have a garden and want a fruit tree Zizihus zizyphus is a good idea.
It is a beautiful small tree (about 4-5 meters high but in some regions it is higher) and has delicious and healthy fruits.
Ziziphus zizyphus, commonly called Jujube, Red Date, or Chinese Date, is a species of Ziziphus in the buckthorn family Rhamnaceae, used primarily for its fruits.
I took the the photos here during my summer holiday in mediterranean cost.
It is very good in that climate.
The fruits are used in Chinese and Korean traditional medicine, where they are believed to alleviate stress.
The freshly harvested as well as the candied dried fruits are often eaten as a snack, or with tea.
The fruit is an edible oval drupe 1.5-3 cm long; when immature it is smooth-green, with the consistency and taste of an apple, maturing dark red to purplish-black and eventually wrinkled.
On the photos the green and brown stages of the fruit can be seen.
I ate the ones on the last photograph they were delicious
