Jujubes- Our New Adventure


#1081

I would love to see some photos of your trees this fall with all the fruits load.


#1082

I got about 30 jujube suckers that need to be mow down tomorrow. No more room for them.

Tony

@jujubemulberry. Here is the Vegas Booty jujube fruit.


#1083

All your suckers are larger than a few I have!!! 2 of mine have gotten eaten by bunnies.


#1084

Your Massandra scion is very fast growing and fruited for me.


#1085

I have a few suckers…


#1086

My Massandra tree does not like the poor soil and heat we have had. Leaves turned yellowish and New leaves got burned. This happened during bloom time. I don’t think I get any fruit set due to the tree was under a lot of stress :weary:

I had to add compost and mulch. It looks better now but may be a bit late.


#1087

My Massandra is not growing like the others. It has a big fruit set this year and maybe that’s why it’s not growing but it is still very tiny.


#1088

i am probably more excited about that fruitlet than you are, haha

Here’s a few of my future jujube rootstock!!!


#1091

What is the size and ripening time of La Fleur? Is it fairly productive?


#1092

@KYnuttrees
Im looking forward to the list of jujubes that thrive in Kentucky.
I live in Florence, Kentucky and i notice a lot of info i find on jujube varieties comes from growers out west with a much different climate.
It has made me wonder what influence our humidity and rain fall will have on the fruit quality.


#1093

La Fleur
Mid season Medium fruit on a smallish tree not a heavy Producer here but very sweet and a delight to consume

Ours is planted on Farm # 1 and it is not in an Idea location and it is between 2 other Large Nut trees
My Plans is toy move it to another location on farm # 3

@Preston
Sure like you mentioned I will list a selection of Jujubes that do extremely well here at our planting sites
Remember it is all about the planting site not so much about the soil and with Full Sun Exposure
From top to bottom in order of Ripening times and the ones that have produced well

Sugar cane
Honey Jar this is Different than Honey Pot
Coco
Redlands # 4
Tiger tooth
Tsao
Black Sea
Lang
Li
Shan Xi Li
Jin
Bok Jo
Dae Sol Jo
Sherwood
Xu Zhou is the last to ripen here in Late OCT to early NOV

Some of the others are hit and miss but the ones listed are our bread and butter for the orchard

We have some seedlings of Xu Zhou that is highly prized but are unnamed as of yet that a cross of the it and Lang

Sure some of them will produce a few fruit here and there but these are the money makers as in Produce

Thank you and good growing

Cliff

I came to a conclusion that the 15 jujube varieties in my collection that Honey Jar is the best tasting, most sweetness, most productive, most crunchiness, most juiciest, and the earliest to ripen in my climate Z5 year in and out!!!

This loaded jujube rootstock mays help pollinated it.

#1096

Your trees are very fruitful. Are they in pots or in ground?

What’s the secret? Didyou spray the trees with something?


#1097

Also, Kansas heat really help your fruit size up fast. Mine are tiny.


#1098

All of them inground at 10 feet tall and six years old.

Tony


#1099

Mine are still tiny. Lang and DaBaiLing

I think the age factor is the really big thing. This is my most productive tree…Chico. I bought it in fall 2016 in a 15 gallon pot and it had an old appearance to its bark. It was about 5 ft tall. It’s not but about 6 1/2-7 foot now and droopy but on third leaf (for me) and I’d bet it was a 4-5 year old tree (if not older) when I bought it.

We are very impatient to get our young bareroot trees to fruit like these older ones. And I want to tell mine to hurry up…I’m not getting any younger… :flushed: :joy::joy::joy:
