[Romagnol] plural giuggiole

A name in Romagna for the jujube. Jujubes are olive-shaped berries with a stone which grow on a shrub related to buckthorn. They ripen from green, through red to dark brown. They have sticky, woolly flesh slightly reminiscent of a date. They are mostly dried, crystallised or made into thick jelly like Turkish delight. The ones in this photograph are larger than usual. They are usually smaller and are sweet, though all have dry flesh.
