Big Jujube Score

Had to share my excitement. Just scored these two honey jar jujube from the local nursery. Over six foot tall in 7 gal. pots for $55. That is a steal on the east coast. They only had five and I’m thinking about wiping out the rest.


nice haul! keep us posted here :slight_smile:

I looked at the tag. It is from Hollybrook Orchards. I have bought some apple trees, from a local nursery that were selling Hollybrook Orchards trees. They have nice trees, they even give you the tree guards with the trees. Really nice buy.426_HoneyJarJujube

Hollybrook is about two hours from here, so there are a lot of places carrying their product here. I have plenty of their things have been well pleased with the price/size. You must have some good zoom to make out those tags.

Hollybrook tags have a clear style to them. I went to their website and downloaded the the tag to post. I see that have 3 different jujube that they sell. I save all the tags from the trees that I bought as a reference. They have a nice website, with all kind of information. I do not think they sell to the public, only wholesale.

Congrats. My question is what you plan to do with 5 jujube trees? I am pretty sure they will produce, probably this year. Do you and your family like eating jujubes or have plan to dry or sell the fruit?

I have a small est. 250 tree orchard. Something I have been putting together to lend to income. Most of the trees are still to young to get any reasonable crop to sell. I have not tried a jujube yet. The others I have keep dropping all the fruit. For the most part they are for sale. We have a lot of people from all over the world here and I noticed no one else was selling them. Plus you guys have always said how expensive they are in the store.

Honey Jars taste good but small in size. Sugar Cane tastes as good to me and is larger. I do not grow Li but know Li is latger but some say it is not as tasty.

@Robert I have one honey jar in the ground and a couple others on the way this year. I am excited for mine to have a pollinator and I just wanted to mention that you probably want to find some other cultivars to pollinate your honey jars. Nice find!

I have a honey jar that fruited heavily on its second year in ground. Hope it is as productive this season. I also grafted a sugar cane cutting to it that also fruited well in the same year it was grafted. Only one of 4 grafts took. Loved honey jar but sugar cane had a saccharine like taste. Maybe it will taste better this year. Anyways good purchase and good luck.

I have a fruit dropping Li and a couple seedlings. Also, a small black sea that I just got from OGW. These were exciting because of the size and cheap price.

You can always graft those seedlings over to honey jar too!
