I am so confused about when jujubes are ripe to eat.

8 years ago

I have 3 jujube trees, a Lang, a Li, and a Sugarcane. The Lang set a lot of fruit this year, the Li maybe a dozen or so and the Sugar Cane only a couple. How do I know when they are ripe? I read that it is when they are reddish brown and wrinkled. Is it like in the picture? They are so chewy I can't eat them or even seem to break them apart in my mouth. Or is there a happy medium between the wrinkled ones in my photos and the green ones. If so, I haven't found that yet.
