Special Issue Information
This Special Issue entitled “Advances in Jujube Research” is dedicated to research on jujube biology, genetics and breeding, ecology and post-harvest treatment and nutrition, but also other aspects of the life of these plants.
Jujube (Ziziphus) is an outstanding multipurpose economic plant with great potential in drought and marginal districts. Chinese jujube (Z. jujuba Mill.) and Indian jujube or ber (Z. mauritiana Lam.) are two main economically valuable species. Commercial and experimental cultivation of jujube takes place mostly in China, Pakistan, India, Iran, Korea, Japan, Australia, USA, Italy, Romania, Israel, etc. However, jujube is still an unknown and underutilized horticultural plant in the world.
This Special Issue aims to gather the current knowledge on various aspects in jujube research. We invite researchers to submit review articles, full-length original papers, communications, short overviews, or comments presenting the various aspects of jujube biology, genetics and breeding, ecology and post-harvest treatment, nutrition and so on.
