Never had a Jujube? Well, you're not alone. Ziziphus Jujuba is a delectable native of China that has been cultivated there for over 4,000 years. The small fruit most closely resembles a date when dried, and has a crispy texture and sweet, apple-like flavor when fresh. A little care goes a long way with this tree. The tree will obtain a height of 30 feet and favors River Willow, with shiny, emerald green leaves. Spring brings long chains of small, fragrant, yellow, star-like flowers. A fantastic shade tree all summer long and in the fall the leaves turn a rich yellow before dropping. Jujubes are self-pollinating.
