jujubes

Sort:
kert starts with ...
After a long gestation period (8 years) two grafted ,different jujubes have fruited . Their names are lost (by the nursery that sold it to me) but to all of you lusting after jujubes ,lust no more. I harvested them brown and wrinkled and they are vaguely sweet and a little crunchy; no more, no less. As someone once explained "Some fruits are meant to be rare"

My experience is different kert, we bought some dried jujubes from Perrys Fuit and Nut nursery and they were sweet and delicious,tasting similar to a date. Is it possible that yours are the indian jujube which is inferior to the chinese? My jujube is 3 years old, about two and a half metres high and has fruit on it. It's true the seed is sharp (much like a date pip) and should not be given to children.

Very interesting. Maybe they are Indian Jujubes . Can one tell by looking at the flowers or leaves ? Glowinski does mention sharp seeds in some varieties but I would prefer some other confirmation before deciding they are Indian.Glowinski says that shop bought jujubes are "candied".

Jantina, I had the same experience - sweet-tasting jujubes. But when I read the packet I found they had added sugar!Probably candied, as kert says. No wonder they were so nice.

I tried to buy seed, but the company (can't remember who) won't send jujube seed to WA. The ones in the Asian grocery had their seeds removed. I think they may be one of those 'forbidden fruits' in WA.

Hi Julie, I'm sure the jujubes I had were not candied but will check with Perrys when I get a moment. Tass1 in WA sells 5 varieties of Chinese jujube.

Sorry to hear that the fruit washed out. I have a Chico tree that is fruiting well, however I eat the fruit fresh, not dried. Flavour is like a tart apple with a rich caramel overlay. I got interested in the trees after eating the fresh fruit in southern Spain.

No all dried jujubes are candied (although many are) and there seems to be a huge amount of variation in the quality of fruit for eating fresh or drying. The best variety in this country appears to be "Li", which produced 2 inch fruit.

More information here:

The only ones I have eaten jave been straight off the tree. Before they get wrinkled they taste a bit like a pear to me, I was not keen, but when they do wrinkly and dry they are very simluar to a date, yum. I don't remember what the seed were like, but I will pick some more soon and have a look.

I have a new cultivar vcalled "Thai Giant" it's an Indian type -very sweet, crispy large fruit on small prolific trees, also thornless. They grow in a fountain-like cascading of branches from the middle.

Highly recommend.

The Chinese jujubes are good, too but not as good as many of the Indian cultivars in my opinion. I have grown both, and in the tropics Indian for me is the way to go.

Anita says...
Hello !

I had traveled to India years back and had eaten a variety of jujube that was very small (size of pistachio), deep red in color (like a plum) and the flavor was a combination of sweet/tart. It was such a yummy little fruit!! The locals were calling it "Chani Bor" ! I am in search for botanical name for this particular plant and hopefully purchase a plant. Can someone please provide me more information about this little jujube fruit ??? Thanks in advance :)

TC :)

Thanks Amanda,

Did the search on their website & it returns nothing.
They must have taken it off or it's not available.
Surely there must be other nurseries (apart from Perrys) that supplies jujube plants? There seems to be a huge demand for it. Unless it's to do with the weed issues.

JUJUBE FOR SALE IN MELBOURNE says...
Hi Amanda,

The JUJUBE (RED CHINESE DATE) GRAFTED AND BARE ROOTED TREES FOR SALE in Melbourne is Ziziphus jujuba of Chinese variety. They are very sweet and rare species. their fruits are prized.

The one that is a weed that invades QLD, WA is the Indian Jujube or Chinee apple (Ziziphus mauritiana).
They look very similar but the taste is different.The weed one is not nice at all (small,very tangy, acidic, big seed too). no one is allowed to even remove the fruit or trees out of it location let alone selling it. Heavy penalty applies. Anyway, those weeds are too tropical to survive in Melbourne

Hey Mr Jujube, I have a few questions regarding jujubes:

-do you need more than one tree for pollination?
-and do they have thorns or spines?
-can they be pruned to keep to a small height and still bear well?

Thanks, Rich

Hi Rich,

You only need one tree, they have very litle thorns or spines. You don't need to prune, it does prune itself. Mine are 8 years old and I have never pruned them.

As the growing season commences, each node of a woody branch produces one to ten fruiting branchlets. Most of these are deciduous, falling from the plant in autumn.

BTW, They are fairly dwarfing in habit.

I hope this helps.

Hi Rich,

They do fruit well in melbourne, WA, SA for sure. I think They fruit well in NSW too as long as not tropical like Cairns and Far north where Indian one is more suitable because the fruiting season is also moonsoon season so fruits can be hard to ripe or split.

Mine are 8 year old and I have had only one small sucker so far and very weak litle one.

JUJUBE FOR SALE IN MELBOURNE says...
Hi Ellen,

Some trees producing baby plants (called suckers) on the ground surrounding the trunk or canopy of the tree. Very common on plum or persimon trees.

They are born from the roots under neath the ground. Normally, you just remove them because they are below the grafted point so if they ever produce fruit, those fruits are no good (little fresh and big stone).

The only way suckers are useful is to use as root stock and graft a named variety to it (it takes 4 years for the whole process & only 15% successful rate, that is why they are not cheap and rare to find because I guess not many nurseries are willing or bother to do it). Yours was done that way.

However, there is a catch that unless it is a very strong sucker there is no point in grafting to a weak sucker because it is going to produce a tree that not doing or fruit well.

I have never had sucker problem BTW.

Here is the picture I took two year ago at Spring time.

BTW, Dr Glowinski said in his book that jujube/Chinese date should fruit well in Canberra too.

Jujube tree is the one in the big pot which has young budding shoots

Hi Ellen,

They are fairly dwarfing in habit in some ways and the picture was taken 2 years ago. It has grown a bit bigger now. I would say it would be 2.5 or 3 meters depending on what you give to the tree i.e dynamic lifter.

Since mine is in the pot so I prefer that size, much easy to pick fruits. And also mine started to have lots of fruits in the first year (I did not remove any fruits) so all energy diverted to fruits, not growing.

BTW, I did cut the top of the tree about 2 years ago to try to multiply more trees using cutting hormone for my siblings because I could not buy any but it did not work. I gave up and decided to search for suppliers to buy jujube trees instead.

In reply to Anita's posting way back in April, CHANI BOR means "chick pea sized Ber". Ber Fruit is another name for the Indian Jujube, Ziziphus mauritiana.

It's also known as Narkeli kul, Boroi, Bor, Beri, and Indian Plum.

Hi Juanita,

Wow, Very productive jujube tree for a small pot just like the chang variety.

I have never covered mine with net against birds, it is all depending to the area you live in. Have you had any problem with birds eating your fruits?

My area has lots of parrots when fruits in season but no problem with this fruits so far.

Regarding to the LI variety the chance of getting very big fruit just like a blood plum is very high. Some of them can be as big as a lime if the tree is growing in ideal condition.

Regading to picking fruits. For LI fruits you can pick them up as white yellow stage or half side of the fruit has turned brown red colour.

With the rest of the varieties, they should be picked as fully brown red stage.

Anyway, the best time to pick them is in the morning before 10 am where they are juicer.

You can eat them out of hand or let them dry on the tree and either making tea with it or cook in recipes using jujube dried fruits in stead of dried sultana

The good thing is they don't dry at the same time so it is a good treat to pick some every time you go to the garden.

Happy growing.

Hi jujube,
I don't know whether my Li's fruits are ready to be picked as they all look pale-green to me, no brown red colour?

Hi Juanita,

Your Li jujube variety is an early variety but the fruits won't be ready until March,they are still getting bigger.

They will slowly turn into brown red colour. You can pick them up as white yellow stage or the best flavour when half side of the fruit has turned brown red colour.
The rest of varieties like Chico, suimen, the fruits should be picked when the whole fruit ( or at least 80%) has just turned brown red colour.

Hi Michael,

Wow! I am glad to hear your Jujube tree is doing exceptionally well. From my memory, it was about 50 cm when I sent to you in August. Well done.

I need to know how tall, big are the new plants (suckers) etc a picture would be nice.
Normally, suckers (if any) are removed from the ground near the mother tree as long as they are not too close to the parent’s trunk. The most suitable age for separating is 2 years old for the suckers and the mother is well established at least 5 years old.

In your case, it is a bit difficult to do so due to the small drainage holes . However, what you could do is to sacrifice the pot and makes the drainage hole bigger and bigger as the suckers grow and re-pot the whole lot by cutting up the pot so the suckers won’t get damage. It should be done in winter where they go dormant.

Alternatively, you could do it this winter, the suckers will be small but please make sure to be able to survive the suckers must have some roots and the mother must have some good roots too. It is a bit of a risky because your jujube tree has been in pot for only less than 6 months so I am not sure if the original tree has enough roots to share.

Now if the operation is successful (20% chances) , you will have some jujube trees but they are seedlings so it may take forever to produce fruits and very small fruits (if any) and very little flesh. To solve this problem, wait for your suckers settle down (another year). You then either to graft a name variety like your Li bud (must be in the grafted branches) yourself or ask an expert in grafting to do it for you. It normally costs between $10 to $20 per bud.

Good luck.

Hi BJ,

I will have some more bare rooted, grafted red Chinese date/jujube Trees in June 2010. I can post to Brisbane.

Jujube trees need to go dormant over the winter. They require about 200-400 hours during the winter that the temperature falls below 8° c. I hope Brisbane climate is in that category

BTW, I have some low chill varieties if you are interested.

Please contact me if you need further information

jujubeforsale@yahoo.com.au

Happy growing.

They do really well in pots.

Jujubes grow in Brisbane , in fact the first jujube tree I had was from a tree that was
propagated from a tree that was growing near a railway station somwhere around Bris.

I got it from a friend (Rick Deering -now deceased) from Beenleigh, Qld. and he used to refered to it by the name of the railway station.

I lost the tree years ago, but can't remember what the name of it was now or if the original tree is still there.

The trees on Rick's amazing farm were razed to the ground by the developers who bought the land soon after his passing.
Sad to see the work of so many years of collecting rare fruit trees destroyed like that.
some were relocated, but most went under the dozer.

So, if anyone has a Jujube tree that they got from Rick ,
I'd like to hear from you please, and possibly get some propagating material

Ok - my post deleted. It's happened once or twice b4 and I am not usually bothered by it - but this time I happen to be. Sam asked for something, in good faith, and got a smart arse response.

Given this forum is anonymous/faceless - I don't think that is either fair or particularly funny, courageous or even worthwhile.

Let's call a spade a spade.

I am not prepared to stand by and watch someone else get cyber-bullied/denigrated/publically humiliated.

From the Internet:
"The main jujube is called Ziziphus jujube, but other members of the same tribe – Z. ziziphus and Z. spina-christi – all find medicinal use. The Arabs, who use the fruit of all three trees to ensure health, feel that the leaves of the plant kill parasites and worms in the intestinal tract which cause diarrhea. The fruits are said to cure coughs, resolve any other lung complaints, soothe the internal organs, and, last but not least, reduce water retention."

"In Haiti, twelve fruits or a handful of leaves and roots are boiled in several cups of water to make a tea taken as an antidote to poison. ... the modern world is filled with poison, most of which we take into our bodies without any coaxing, and the jujube may be the corrective we need."

"Jujube pits, when aged for three years, are considered excellent for wounds and abdominal pain. The leaves are used to treat children suffering from typhoid fever – they induce the sweating thought to break the fever. They are also used for a number of infectious diseases."

Actually Kert is not far off the mark in view of the ailments listed above, that the Arabs used Ziziphus medicine to treat. In recent European history (150 years), diarrhoea was thought to be caused by demons, bloodletting by a prist was used to release them (rather draining on an already dehydrated patient).

I wonder if the association of sulphur smell and the devil could have some origin in those hideous burps one does when there is a explosive demon gurgling in the belly.

Given the wide application of use for biological infection listed by v. cactus, it appears likely that Ziziphus leaves carry some toxic compound/s that are harmful to a broad spectrum of parasites. Which in turn, presents the possibility of toxicity to humans at high enough dosage. I have been told this is the case with wormwood, another plant used for worming, purported to cause liver damage at an elevated dosage.

Assuming dosage is important for Ziziphus leaves, any info on dosage would be valuable if one wants to use it as medicine. I would love to hear more about it if someone has any info.

Maybe a rough dosage could be calculated by counting the number of leaves used, for instance “ten”.

There are hundreds of Jujube cultivars. Some more spiny than others. I have Li and Tiajian. I think both have tiny spines.

I pulled out a bit of info from a Sub-tropical fruit club newsletter that happened to be sitting next to me here:

'Young plants are generally spiny...As trees age they tend to produce fewer spines, and any spines that are produced are shorter and thinner and are apt to shrivel and fall. A few cultivars appear to be spineless, but this is because their spines are shorter, thinner, softer and drop early.'

I have a cultivar which I named "Deering" after the late Rick Deering who created this hybrid. It has short but shape thorns. Rick had about 20 cultivars when he passed away.

Has anyone successfully struck a cutting or marcotting? If grafting, which is the best technique and any timing tips? I need to preserve this cultivar as I believe it is one of few left of this hybrid.

I removed a very young green shoot from the rootstock (no heal) and planted it just for the hell of it. Blow me down it has a very strong white root comming out of the bottom of the tubestock. I'm tempted to have a closer look just to see if the shoot is in fact comming from the tender cutting, or something else has germinated in the pot. I'll keep you posted.

@ frutist.
If it's the cv. I think you have, Rick used to refer to it by the name of a suburb in Brisbane where the original tree was from,
actually near a railway station, but I forget the name of it.
It was the one a few mwtres west of the shadehouse next to his house.
Rick would often grow it via marcotting.
I bought one from him many years ago and planted it at my brothers place but the pigs got out and demolished it. :-(

It was really sad to see his whole collection deteriorate during his final days,
and then the susequent destruction of it by 'developers' as it was bulldozed.
I would really like a plant of this cultivar if you do get some going, even if for sentimental reasons.
scion wood would be ok.

If it is a different clone , but from Rick, I'd still be interested anyway.

Please let me know if you can help.

thanks,
speedy

Hi fruitist, you must have got me mixed up with someone else as I don't have any pictures up on the forum. I have Chico (small thorns) and Suimen (no thorns yet) growing. We have dug up suckers and got them growing in pots with a view to grafting later. The fruit on my Chico was not very big (about the size of a strawberry) a bit disappointing but as it was it's first real fruiting maybe they'll be bigger this year. The Suimen is just a small plant in a pot but has flowers so I may get fruit.
Good tip about the marcotting speedy, will give that a go.

Speedy, I visited Rick Deering during his final months. He showed me a few of his Jujube trees. Most were close to the back door of his house. I will see how to propagate the tree I have. I might try some cuttings as I have a fair bit of successes with other difficult trees. I see that you live in Victoria, I will be go to Victoria a few times a year so I may bring some if I do have successes with the propagation. I tried germinating some seeds before but none germinated and some seeds were sent overseas but I doubt they germinate even with scarification. I quite like the fruits now as they are bigger now with the bigger tree. About a ping pong size and quite sweet unlike those big ones I ate in China which are bland in taste.

@fruitist
Thanks, and good luck with it.
If you are successful and you do get over here on one of your trips to Victoria at some stage,
I have many things you may be interested in as a trade for the jujube plant(s).

To germinate jujube seeds, I use a pair of secateurs to cut along the longditudinal seam that divides the two seed locules.
A bit tricky and needing concentration so as not to chop your fingers.

Often there is one seed and one empty locule.
some cultivars have no viable seed especially if there are no other trees to out cross with.

The naked seeds germinate fairly quickly after sowing especially if stratified or treated with GA3.

Speedy, thanks for the good info. Whate is your succes rate in germinating naked seeds? Did you mean to say you treat naked seed and not the whole seed with GA? I am interested in obtaining GA, where can I buy the stuff. Is it in powder form? Many years ago, I tried GA on Annona seeds with mixed success. My Sydney source of GA has gone overseas. When I have the Jujube seeds which will be around next June, I will send them to you.

At one stage, I have about 320 different species of fruit trees growing in the ground and pots and planter bags. I have never grown a Babaco and rare Carica species. Do you have some? I have a few rare Caricas and a few years back I gave away many many seedlings to Daleys here.

I will be going to Melbourne around next February 1st.

Hey fruitist,
If you're driving, I'm only a couple of mins off the Pacific Hwy near Wyong if you are keen for a Babaco.

I used GA3 at 500ppm and soaked seed overnight.
the germination rate was high (couldn't give figures) but just as importantly,
they mostly germinated around the same time rather than sporadically over a long period.
I dont know if they'd germinate just as well without the GA3,
maybe just getting them out of the shell is enough.

I dont have any Carica spp. ( apart from a sad little babaco), but I have grown a few in the past.
Maybe I could find some for you.
I do much prefer a well grown good Papaya

Lucy will be more than happy to take your order and you will be more than happy with Lucy's trees. They will be sent bare-rooted (no soil) in winter for winter planting.
Do some homework first so you know which cultivar to order, she has quite a selection to choose from. I may be ordering more cultivars myself.

There is something good about Jujubes. First they don't ask for much. And then they are reAlly tough-- being the only plant unphased in my garden when it turned 45deg C., ---an all time record. (Are you listening ,Tony?)
'Fraid that's all ; none will write poetry about its taste and I've yet to hear anyone say "Life's not like a bowl of jujubes"

Jason, I know they won't be falling on the ground like your apples and white sapotes, lol. There's varieties that fruit early, mid and late season, so you can have Jujubes for the best past of 5 to 6 months of the year, yummo.

Hi Miranda,

Luckily, we don't have fruit fly in Melbourne, I have a customer in NSW who has this problem. Jujube fruits can be attacked by fruit flies ONLY IF you live in an infested area . The best way to protect fruits is to bag them because fruit flies may attack thin skin fruits. I have seen fruit fly maggots in star fruit, sapodilla, dragon fruit, custard apples, pomelos and veggies like lufa, capsicums, tomato and even hot chilies are on the list too.

Hi Amanda,

If you can't get a grafted tree then have a go at a seedling/sucker. As long as the root stock from a sweet variety not a sour type (can be a medicine I was told).
I tested one of my trees by letting the sucker grew and eventually got fruits. Due to sharing the same root as it parent it grew really fast and strong. I got lots of very sweet fruits about the size of a smallest olive with small seed but very sweet like the mother. Unfortunately, the mother did not grow and fruit well so I had no choice but to kill it.

You never know that in term of generic nature, some of seedlings may look like the mother or father and luck may come to you that way.

Good luck.

Hi everyone, I love the jujube from Lucy, this is my Li I bought from Lucy 3 years ago, this year it gave me about 10kg fruits.
I got 3 more Li from Lucy this year, the tree quite big this year.
I would recommend anyone want jujube should get it from Lucy, she extremely helpful and lovely, I'm sure your tree will fruit just after 6 months

14 varieties to choose from sounds great but I have no idea how to choose so I hope you will do that for me Lucy and send me one that would grow well in a pot in Sydney. I have decided to do some serious culling in my orchard and I will make room for a jujube. I have now given up trying to relocate so better make the most of what I have here.

Hi Mary,

Normally, those fruits are very sweet in

- all shapes (round, elongated, pear, round like a ball, oval, granny smith apple etc ) and sizes
- late, mid or early season varieties
- eat fresh or as dried fruits or both
- tree shape weeping or not

People have different taste and requirements and lots of options

I have chosen shanxi Li for you and email sent. You can change to another one if you like.

Many thanks

Lucy

Hi JUJUBEFORSALEINMELBOURNE,
A quick note to let you know my trees arrived well packed and great size. I'll be picking jujubes till the cows come home this year. I must check with you to see if I have the full grafted collection now available in Australia?
Thank you very much for your excellent service and hopefully, will be doing more business with you next winter, if there are any new varieties I don't have.

Add me to the list for for a honey jar now. honey jar is very popular in the US.
I found a description of honey jar from the US:
"Unique small but very delicious sweet, crunchy and juicy fruit has very thin skin and is considered one of the best for fresh eating. Makes a good dried fruit too.. Considered the earliest ripening jujube it is one of the best choices for cooler coastal or northern climates. Also does fine in hot southern climates where it can ripen as early as July". (January here).

They just weren't available when I started looking for them, but Jujube Lucy's research and tenacity found them and made them readily available. I would've paid double. A new/rare commodity usually commands a premium.

My first plasma TV cost me $7,700, it's been at the local tip for quite some time now, the price you pay for being a pioneer I guess.

Some are best eaten fresh, other cv's are best left to dry on the tree like a date, hence the name. The large round Li variety is similar to a small sweet apple, without the acid. When dried, the sugar is concentrated making it more sweeter. I haven't produced enough to leave dry on the tree yet, and they produce heaps.

Hey John, the first time I tasted a jujube was when I found a plant growing wild on a footpath outside a guy's place that grew hundreds of Australian native fruits. I think he planted it on the footpath because it wasn't Australian. Anyway, it was absolutely loaded with fruit. The plant was only about three feet tall and round. I picked some of the green fruit and took it home. They tasted sweet and juicy like apples. However.....I must have dropped a jujube on the seat of my husband's work ute because a few weeks later I found a flattened, dark brown dried fruit. I think my husband sat on it. I picked it up and inspected it. Hmmmm what's a little bum squashing between husbands and wives, I thought and took a nibble. Oh bliss!! It was like a juicy date. I dug up a few suckers before the dozers flattened everything the old guy had grown over fifty years. Then I placed an order with Jujubes for sale in Melbourne and I'm so excited that I should be getting them in a couple of months.
I don't know what the variety is of the one I dug up.

Just wondering if anyone has any jujube plants or seeds for sale at the moment? I've tried Daley's, Diggers and ebay, but nothing available at the moment!

I sold my Chinese Jujube and bought an Indian Jujube. I think people should also consider the Indian Jujube.Its hard and crunchy like a tangy little apple and is is delicious with chilli salt.My variety matures in winter so no fruit fly problem at all.

I believe that the Indian Jujube - Chinee Apple - is classified as an invasive weed in Queensland so that might be an issue for people interested in growing it there.

I am growing a Chinee Apple, which was sent to me by mistake, down here in Melbourne but find it is very difficult to get going and does not seem very hardy. After 2 years it has hardly grown at all. Can you tell me how to make it grow. Thanks.

I see them all the time for sale, they are called putsaa in Thailand.

They are green/brown now but i've also seen other colors.

Are they legal to receive seeds from?
