The natural fruit weight is 10g, one-leaf-three-fruit, the biggest fruit weighs about 25g, The content ratio of natural Vitamin C in celestial jujube is 212-549 mg/100g; which is 50 times of apple's and 100times of pear′s. The content of Fe, Zn and Ca in celestial jujube is quite rich, too. The content ratio of Ca is about 679mg/100g, so it can be called Ca king of fruit.
