Introduction to the Jujube Plant:
Your New Favorite Fruit Tree!
Presenter: Dr. Shengrui Yao
Saturday, Nov. 2 ■ 9 a.m. – Noon
Have you ever tasted an AmeriZao? It has the texture of an apple, but not the tartness. It can also taste like a date. This fruit of many flavors is the American jujube, also known as Chinese dates. An excellent fruit tree for home growers here as jujubes are low maintenance plants and produce a reliable crop annually. Workshop includes a discussion of late fall fruit tree care and a walk around the Heritage Orchard with a tasting from our own jujube trees!
