With the onset of spring and summer, the bountiful nature is ready to shower us with the best fruits ever! Jujube or ber as we call it India is one such fruit that makes waiting for the spring worthwhile. Resembling a date in appearance, the fruit is also known as red date. The slightly tarty and sweet fruit can range from red to purplish to peach in colour. The bite-sized fruit also comes with a host of health benefits. From better digestion to inducing sleep, the range of benefits are mind-boggling.
