Growing Jujube's in Seattle


Jujubes:



Jujube's are a delicious apple/date like fruit. It's also known as the Chinese Date or Korean date. They store well and are a great snack. 

The taste can be compared to a crunchy apple but interestingly enough the more you chew the sweeter it tastes. 

I have a Li and Lang jujube planted in ground without any protection in Seattle. The video below is the progress from flower (June) to ripe fruit (October). Enjoy!

  2. Thank you so much for this video. I though Jujube might not perform well in Seattle areas because I planted 2 of them about 7 years ago in north of Seattle and never get any fruit. Now after watching this video I will try again . Thank you so much. ( Maybe Early season varieties be better to plant )
