Sugar Cane jujube is true to its name, this jujube is extremely sweet.  Small to medium fruit with a crunchy, crisp texture and an apple-like flavor.  The plant spines are smaller than those on Li or Lang and the delicious fruit makes it worth the effort. Sugar Cane jujube ripens earlier in the fall than other jujubes. Needs another jujube variety for pollination.  Jujubes do well in hot interior regions and are very drought tolerant.  Tree is 5/8" caliper, 5-6 feet tall.

Basic tips for Pruning:  Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...                                                             
 
Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
