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.
Jujube Tree Pollination
