This year's jujube is sweeter than last year's, maybe it has to do with watering less and stressing the tree. I know it is true of the cantaloupes and melons I grew over the summer. I withheld water on the cantaloupes for the last 7-10 days before harvest, they were SOOOOOO sweet, the most fragrant, sweetest, and juiciest cantaloupes I ever tasted.
