Li Jujube – Sweet and Ripens Early!
Li jujube is the one to pick if you only have room for one jujube. You’ll get abundunt crops of very large (3oz.), round sweet fruit on a tree that’s the first jujube variety to ripen. Li’s thin skin and small seed make it great for eating fresh. Pick the fruit yellow/green and they’ll ripen off the tree or let them stay to achieve that deep mahogany color. Ripens mid August to September. Zone 6-9.
