I order dried jujubes from
I remember paying $280 for 10kg, that was wholesale price.

This was an email I received from them last year.
"Our dried jujubes go on sale at the beginning of May each year. Our harvest runs through March and April, and we focus on selling our fresh jujubes in this period as well as dehydrating some."

Hoping my seeds sprout but nothing as yet.

Yes Barbara have eaten 7 fruits and they are very nice. Am drying one out to see what that's like.

I really, really, really hope you enjoy the fruit, Doug.

Hey Joe, I bought this from Daley's nursery. Think it was 100 bucks, something obscene!

Hi Doug, Where did you get the tree and how much cost you?

Be very careful Doug. I had a 7 year old jujube plant contained in a pot which I got rid about a year ago. I still have suckers coming up at the moment. I love dried jujubes but I've decided it to do mail order from a farm in Victoria instead.

No Janet it is in the ground. I want a few root suckers so I can graft some more of this variety. I will keep an eye on the suckers!

Jujube is a very invasive plant, do you contain it in a pot?

I had these in an exclusion bag to protect them from fruit fly
