Does your Sugar Cane Jujube look like this?

I think I have seen images where the fruit is rounder.


Here are my Sugarcane from prior year with the quarter on top. The rounder ones are Honey Jar.



Speaking of Sugarcane, my SC is being utilized by the local ant colony to the point I can’t enjoy any of the fruit for myself. Strange, as it is literally touching a Honeyjar that goes undisturbed. First the ants make a cut, then clear out the inside as they - I assume - make nest? To note, the fruits are undamaged prior to the ants invasion. Below are a few pictures showing the progression:


If I were to “pop” that last pictured jujube, it would just collapse and about 30-50 ants would come storming out.

Try to use tangle foot on the trunk of the tree so the ants can’t get to the fruits.



The Sugarcane jujubes I’ve gotten have been very close to round, very different from the photo at the top of this thread.

Your Sucar Cane has a narrow shape. Mine looked like other posters’, fatter and oblong, not round.

Either you got a mislabeled tree or your growing climate is quite different so it produced SC that shaped differnly.


Thank you for everyone’s pictures and confirmation. I got my scion from Cliff England’s many years ago and grafted onto Sherwood. I have since grafted on to regular rootstock and the fruits still look the same. Even the seeds are narrow and slender! They start turning color from the bottom when ripening.

Now I am wondering if they even taste different.


I’d love to know what variety is your jujube. The shape of the fruit and the seeds are not like Sugar Cane.

@KYnuttrees, Cliff England is a forum member here. I hope he will chime in to help you figure out what jujube variety you have there.

It’s interesting. How do they taste?

Not Sugarcane. Maybe Tigertooth? If they taste mediocre they could be tigertooth

@nana7b wants to find out if you could tell what jujube variety she has.

She said she got the tree from your nursery many years ago.

Here’s Sugar Cane seed.


I would have to know this persons name and about would year the trees or scion wood was purchased

Is that all? :slightly_smiling_face:

Mamuang, they taste good and sweet. I prefer Honey Jar over it, but Honey jar is long gone by the time this one ripens. Ripens along Sherwood and Tigers tooth for me.

Bob, I have Tigers tooth also and as you mentioned most times it is not worth eating. However, I have heard that it is a drying jujube and I have not tried that. Also Tigers tooth is the last to have ripe fruit and I end up eating a few as there is nothing else by then.

Interestingly Rolling River Nursery’s website states the Sugar Cane fruit can be rounded or elongated.

Cliff, my name is Ruvan and I purchased scion from you in Jan 2011. Here is part of the invoice you emailed me. The final invoice that came with the order contained an extra scion that I did not order. I believe it was Shihong. It had somewhat rounded fruit but split fruit pretty badly so I got rid of it.

Looks and sounds a lot like what I bought as Autumn Beauty (also from Cliff England) but doesn’t seem to be that either. Whatever it is, I like it!

@nana7b and @mamuang

I will have to have the full name you can message it to me if you like as My Phone # is 606-493-8239

But the items that we sell true to type and have produced before we release them to the public

Ok, it can be more challenging looking at green jujubees…but if not Tigertooth…& if they were very sweet…maybe GA866?..but I’ve only grown 16-17 varieties or so, and there are so many available now I’ve never tried, I’m just guessing
