Chinese jujube is a major fruit tree in Southern Xinjiang, but the table cultivars, which are suited to cultivate in this area are still a deficiency. In this paper, thirty-two table cultivars of Chinese jujube introduced to Chinese Jujube Repository, Wensu in Southern Xinjiang were comprehensively evaluated on 13 main important economical characteristics. Based on the weighted relevance analysis, the top ten excellent cultivars were ‘Daguazao’, ‘Fengmiguan’, ‘Yueguangzao’, ‘Dabailing’, ‘Laishuilingzao’, ‘Zhanling’, ‘Lajiaozao’, ‘Jingzao 39’, ‘Dalilinglingzao’ and ‘Shandonglizao’. The result provides a reliable reference for readjustment of jujube cultivars in Xinjiang.
