About Ziziphus Jujuba

Jujube is the fruit of a tree that reaches eight meters in height and has many varieties.

This tree has strong wood and its bark is red-brown and thick. Some species of jujube tree have thorns. The thorns of this tree stems are very sharp, strong, elongated, slightly crescent-shaped and the same color as the stems.

The leaves are slightly elongated, almond-shaped, and slightly thick, and grow alternately with very short petioles. The side of these leaves is jagged.

The flowers are very small and yellowish green and grow at the junction of the leaves and stems. Each flower has five triangular petals that are completely separate and grow in a regular pentagon.

Its fruit is small, fleshy, almost oval, and egg-shaped. Its flesh and skin is green at first. But after it is fully ripe, its skin is deep red and its flesh is cream color. It is wrinkled after drying. The taste of this fruit is sour at first. But after fully ripening, it becomes sweet and glazed. Jujube has a hard, small, elongated, brown core, which is pointed at both ends and attached to its flesh.

The best jujubes are fully ripe, large, fleshy, sweet and red.

Propagation of this tree is done by planting seeds, cutting or basal shoot and since this tree produces a lot of basal shoots, every year it is necessary to cut its basal shoots and clean the base of the tree in order to maintain the balance of the plant. Therefore, the most common and fastest way to reproduce it is through basal shoot. If you are going to plant the kernel of the fruit for the reasons of genetic research, it is better to break the hard outer layer of the kernel and plant it, but be careful not to damage the kernel. Usually, the seed germinates two years after planting.

Basal shoot can be planted in early or late autumn depending on different climates. The jujube tree can be planted at intervals of 6 x 6 meters, and since it grows very slow, it is possible to plant fast-growing and short-lived trees in the intervals of the jujube trees, so that in the first few years, when the jujube has not yet reached the age of exploitation, those tree fruits can be harvested.

Obviously, in such cases, trees should be chosen that do not conflict with jujubes in terms of crop care and do not cause disturbances in the growth and development of jujubes. Because the jujube tree is almost one of the last trees that blooms and leaves grow (in June and July), therefore it is immune to the risk of frost in continental weather. The jujube tree usually reaches its maximum fruiting at the age of 15 to 20 years.

If you want to eat its fresh fruit, you should pick it from the tree as soon as it starts to turn red and eat it, and if you want to dry it, you should wait for the fruit to ripen completely and then pick it.
