Ancient Chinese Secret Revealed: The Jujube is Magnificent

For more than 40 centuries, the Jujube has withstood the test of time in gardens throughout the Orient. Now, this incredible tree from China with its magnificent gray bark is catching on throughout the west-and with good reason. The Jujube's long branches are covered in delicate leaves that shine a glossy green. In the fall, they turn a brilliant, jasmine yellow that makes it a coveted landscape specimen.

As winter's grip sheds the Jujube of its leaves, the unique bark and weeping branches give it an ancient character that few trees possess. The dynamic visual changes of the Jujube will delight you throughout each season.

The Strong Tree with a Rewarding Fruit

The Jujube is not only beautiful, it' impervious to the harsh elements that many trees can't endure. There's a reason it's survived for thousands of years. Able to flourish in subzero temperatures or scorching summer heat-even drought is no match for the adaptable Jujube. The payoff is during harvest season when the Jujube yields the heavenly fruit for which it takes its name.

Sometimes called Chinese Dates, the crimson-brown fruit hangs in clusters, bringing out more rich color to complement the leaves. Not only are Jujubes visually appealing, beneath the crisp skin its red flesh is full of sweet, tart, apple-like flavor. Used throughout history for their medicinal properties, Jujubes are packed with vitamin C. Eat them fresh, add them to salads, dry them-even put Jujube in your teas for extra flavor.

However you enjoy them, don't wait another season. Bring the old world charm and sweet taste of Jujube home today.





Li Jujube Tree Pollination

Li Jujube Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Li Jujube Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Sweet Little Tree
I just received and planted my first jujube tree. Cold winds were blowing upon its arrival so I brought it into the kitchen, dug out a big bowl and set the pot into the bowl and placed it on the dining table. It was bare of all leaves, but had a few thorns. The bark on the little tree reminded me of "pond cedar" bark that grows in the water around the edge of lakes and ponds here in northern florida. It looks as if it has been shellacked....beautiful. When the winds stopped, about 5 days later, I took it outside to plant it and was shocked to see that it had, in only 5 days, sprouted out 5 clusters of bright green leaves about 1 inch long. I am so excited about this little tree. I pushed the ends of 3 one inch in diameter pvc pipes into the ground around the base of the tree and taped the tops of the pipes together to form a teepee over the precious little tree. I have a lawn man who gets too quick and close to my fruit trees with his weed-wacker. He is forbidden to go near my citrus trees, and the open teepee will, not only remind him to go away, but could be used if we had a freezing night suddenly jump and bite us....a sofa throw could be tossed over the teepee and snatched off in the a.m. just after sunrise. I do so love this little tree. It looks so healthy. I am toying with getting another one. Nothing was said about needing a pollinator....do I need one?

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Li Jujube Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Li Jujube Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Li Jujube Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Li Jujube Tree again after the transplant is complete.
