JUJUBES

Though not well known to westerners, Jujubes have been cultivated in Asia for 4000 years yet some sources claim that it may have originated in the near east with the Persians. This attractive small tree has gnarled branches, fine lacy foliage and profuse small white fragrant blooms in mid summer. The abundant crops of the unique sweet reddish-brown fruit unevenly ripening in fall. As it matures, it becomes wrinkled looking like a small date and is often called a Chinese date. The trees are pest free and are highly adaptable to many regions withstanding temperatures from lows of -20F to highs of 100F and higher. Plant in full sun and at least 15 ft. apart as they will grow to 15-40 ft tall and 15-25 ft wide. While partially self-pollinating, planting two varieties ensures a greater crop.
