Shanxi jujube fruit is sweet, large jujube with characteristic sprightly apple flavor. The Shanxi jujube tree fruit can be dried, but most people enjoy it fresh off the tree when it is in between the green-red stage. Medical studies have found many health benefits of jujubes and they are a great source of natural antioxidants.  The Shanxi jujube is similar to Li jujube, but the fruit is often larger in size.  Jujubes trees do very well in hot interior regions and are extremely drought tolerant. The Shanxi jujube ripens in fall.  Please refer below for further information of the Shanxi jujube trees for sale.

Basic idea 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.
