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.
