Moreover, their resistance to pests and diseases means less time fussing over your tree and more time enjoying the fruits of your labor.

The Jujube Tree’s rewards extend beyond its effortless care. The small, apple-like fruits have a sweet, crisp texture when fresh, and they mature into a soft, date-like consistency when dried.

In the garden, Jujube Trees shine with their architectural beauty. Their gnarled, zigzagging branches create an eye-catching pattern, while the shiny, bright green leaves bring a lush vibrancy. Come fall, the leaves turn a stunning yellow, providing a dramatic seasonal display.

Maintaining your Jujube Tree is straightforward – a sunny location, well-draining soil, and occasional watering in dry conditions are the basic requirements. A yearly application of a balanced fertilizer can also enhance the tree’s health and productivity.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
