Ziziphus jujuba Dongzao is a slow growing, multi-stemmed fruit shrub/small tree from the Far-East. It has gooseberry-sized, edible fruits (taste between an apple and a pineapple) that mature from green to brown in the Autumn. The fruits can be eaten raw, cooked or in confectionary. Tiny yellow flowers develop in the spring. The Chinese Date "Dong" is drought tolerant, not fussy to soil conditions and is suitable for pot growing.
We have 10-15cm tall, 1.5 years old freshly potted plants from cloning (not from seed). Please note that its side shoots naturally die back in November to the main stem which is hardened off with a top bud (only the roots and main stem is alive in Winter)! It will bud out from late March and will be lush green by May. (It is very difficult to get good seeds or fresh propagation which is reflected in the items price.)
