Species of Ziziphus are considered to be multipurpose plants although use of the fruits is the major focus of interest. They are of increasing use in agroforestry. The composition of the fruits is therefore of importance especially since they are produced by a limited number of species which have been cultivated for millennia. There is a great deal of published data on the potential of the species for ethnobotanical uses (Arndt and Kayser, 2001). Pareek (2001) noted that although different parts of the plant have medicinal value due to their constituents their usage appears to be sporadic and not commonplace. This chapter looks in particular at the nutritive composition of fruits and then provides a summary of the more important ethnopharmacological compounds and their properties, when known.
