What is a Bare Root Fruit Tree?
A Bare root fruit tree is a 2-3 year old fruit tree which has been dormant for the winter. It is delivered to you without soil. The best time to plant bare root fruit trees is the end of the winter season. This gives your tree time to acclimate to it's environment before the warmth of spring comes.

 

Tips:

 

  • Require minimal chill and plentiful summer sun and heat to set fruit.
  • Prefer sandy, well-drained soils and while tolerating many soil types, do less well in heavy, poorly drained soil.
  • Drought tolerant, but better crop with regular water. Winter prune to maintain plant health.
  • Jujube trees do have thorns.
  • This fruit tree is shipped dormant and bare-rooted.
