Chinese Jujube - ююба

Ziziphus jujuba / Jujube Fruit / Chinese Date / 3inзule

Yesterday when I was watching a food based Russian alphabet video (Tasty ABC - Delicious Alphabet - Russian ABCs in the Kitchen) I found the word ююба. It translates to jujube on Google Translate, but I could see by the image on the video that they were talking about a fig of some kind and not Jujubes candy.

So I got curious about these Chinese figs that aren't so popular here where I live in the States. Via Yandex I found Ююба — Китайский Финик, from a Russian blog called Taste of Thai (looks like they have some yummy recipes). You can also search ююба images on the Russian search engine.
