JUJUBE Ziziphus jujuba

Also known as Chinese dates the jujube is a small deciduous tree or shrub reaching a height of 5–10 m, usually with thorny branches.  Fruits are oval 1.5–3-cm  in size, when immature they are smooth-green, with the consistency and taste of an apple maturing dark red to purplish-black and eventually wrinkling to look similar to a date. There is a single hard stone similar to an olive stone.

Weed Warning - Trees do tend to sucker from their roots around the tree and these suckers are spiny and can be a nuisance.

This plant is supposed to be the ultimate in toughness; requiring about 2000 'heat hours', which it should obtain against a west facing wall in a pot in full Perth sun. I was surprised as to how similar to dates the fruit tasted - quite acceptable! For something so tough it is surprisingly attractive and graceful. It is already fruiting. I've planted a few strawberries in the pot to act as a living mulch. Most of the strawberries have been fried by the sun, but they are recovering in autumn.

The jujube lost its leaves on its own accord in May.

By Jan 2012 there are a few fruit - but not as many as last year. I'm not sure if it is ideally suited to a pot. The plant has grown about 40cm and seems unfazed by the hottest of days.

May 2012 - leaves turned yellow and shed through autumn. The plant has been released into the ground. I discovered that the roots had taken up most of the area of the pot ... clearly jujube are not suited to pots of roots would need to be trimmed every 12 months. It will still be subject to substantial heat, but I hope it will grow larger in the freedom of the soil. I am hoping that in time it will assist with shading the avocado
