Jujubes are some of the most drought-tolerant fruiting trees you can grow! They are pretty trees with glossy, small green leaves that turn vivid yellow in autumn. Called "Chinese Date", the fruit is very sweet, reddish brown when ripe, 1-1/2" long with a single seed. These grafted trees will grow to 20' or more but can be maintained much smaller. They are very productive and early bearing, and the fruit needs hot summers to ripen well. In cooler summers, before fall rains return, pick them half brown and half green and bring inside to finish ripening. Most varieties require a different variety as a pollinizer. Zones 6-10.
