Ziziphus jujuba
This rare and unique Chinese native features compact growth habit, attractive, contorted branches, fine lacy foliage, and profuse, small fragrant flowers. Jujube's tasty, reddish-brown fruit ripens in late fall with a sweet, apple-like flavor. Jujube is hardy to minus 20°F or below and can grow to 8 to 10 feet in height. While somewhat self-fertile, planting two varieties ensures good crops. Jujube is not bothered by pests or diseases.
