Autumn Beauty: I previously thought this was a Winter Delight, but I’m fairly convinced it’s in fact an Autumn Beauty. Large fruit, precocious, great taste. My favorite. I’ve purchased another Autumn Beauty from One Green World, who imported this variety (as well as a Winter Delight), & should be able to confirm identities this year.
Sugarcane: Medium sized fruit, great taste. I’ve seen a couple reports of it being a shy bearer but it’s been good here.
Shihong, great taste here in Dallas, though some other posters don’t like its texture. Medium size fruit, very productive.
Honey Jar: Great taste, small fruit, very productive, precocious.
Chico: Tastes different than all other jujubes; my wife & her Korean friends love it, but I can only eat a couple; a rather winey flavor that seems a little cloying if that makes any sense. Medium to large size fruit, very precocious, very productive. If planting only 1 variety I wouldn’t choose this, but definitely in the top 4-5. Burnt Ridge sold me a good sized tree.
Li: Large, usually very good taste. Taste was of varied quality first 3-4 years but has been consistently good last 3-4 years. Very productive, fairly precocious.
Contorted So: small-medium size, most years tastes great but the tree occasionally produces mediocre fruit.
Shanxi Li: Slightly larger than Li, tastes good but I prefer the taste of Li. I’ve never seen the extra-large fruits some nurseries talk about.
Sherwood: Great taste, medium size, but slow to bear, like 5-6+ years & I haven’t seen a heavy crop yet. I’ve seen great reports from CA & Fla.
GA866: rivals pears for time to bear, longer than Sherwood. I’ve tasted a few; very very sweet, but to me not much flavor; so I wouldn’t recommend this one. Medium size fruit. I did see one good report from S Texas, took them 8 years to get a productive tree.
Lang: Don’t know why anyone would grow this; very productive but usually tasteless. Large fruit.
Tigertooth: The most productive tree for me, but usually tastes like cardboard. Apparently does well in Fla. Medium size fruit.
Xu Zhou: no fruit after 6 years, & I’ve moved from that house; I’ll try another one this year.
Growing but no results yet: CoCo, Blacksea, Redlands 4, Winter Delight and Massandra.
