It is a small deciduous tree or shrub reaching a height of 5–10 m, usually with thorny branches.

The fruit is an edible oval drupe 1.5–3-cm deep; when immature it is smooth-green, with the consistency and taste of an apple, maturing brown to purplish-black and eventually wrinkled, looking like a small date.

There is a single hard stone similar to an olive stone.

The fruits are used in Chinese and Korean traditional medicine.

The tree tolerates a wide range of temperatures and rainfall, though it requires hot summers and sufficient water for acceptable fruiting. it tolerates fairly cold winters.This enables the jujube to grow in the mountain desert habitats.  

The freshly harvested as well as the candied dried fruits are often eaten as a snack, or with tea.

In China, a wine made from jujubes, called hong zao jiu  is also produced.
