Lang Jujube

out of stock

Produces fruit that are easily mistaken for baby Bosc pears before turning their beautiful burnished mahogany. They're incredibly tasty when fully ripe, but not until then. Wait for the fruit to turn dark before eating. These fruit are also excellent if left on the tree to dry. Tree is upright and nearly thorn-less. Partially self-fertile, which means you can grow just one tree and get fruit, but you'll get more if you have two different varieties. Fruit ripens in early to mid-September.

 

Li Jujube

out of stock

Also called "Chinese date". Round-shaped fruits are larger than "Lang". The "Li" Jujube is sweet and tasty when picked while yellowish-green. It turns reddish-brown, dry and wrinkled, sweet and chewy (like dates) when fully ripe in early Fall. Attractive, easy-to-grow tree.  Low chilling requirement. Partly self-fruitful, or pollenized by Lang.

 

Sherwood Jujube

out of stock

The fruit of the "Sherwood" Jujube tree is excellent tasting with a sweet apple-like flavor. The fruit is large, oblong, shiny and reddish-brown. Like the other Jujube varieties, it's drought tolerant, and good for eating fresh or dried. The Sherwood has notably less thorns than other varieties. Self pollinating.
