Abstract: The physio-chemical characteristics of jujube (Zizyphus spina Christi) fruit grown in the central region of Saudi Arabia were investigated. The fruit is of a relatively small size and low pulp content. The chemical analysis showed that the ripe fruit pulp contained, on dry matter basis, 10.09% protein, 1.89% fat, 38.12% carbohydrates and 4.42% ash. Ascorbic acid content in the ripe stage was 50.44 mg/100mg pulp while it was highest in the pre-ripe stage (80.93 mg/100g pulp). Among minerals determined in the ripe stage, potassium was present in a relatively appreciable amount (380 mg/100g pulp). The amino acid profile of jujube protein indicated that threonine was found in a high concentration compared to the resembling fruits.
