Successfully planting and nurturing a Jujube tree starts with knowing the basics. Growing Jujube trees isn't super difficult, and unlike some plants and trees, they require sandy well-drained soil to ensure a healthy lifespan.

How do you Plant Jujube Trees?

To plant a Jujube Tree, you'll need to first dig a hole large enough for its root system. This can typically be done by making it twice the size of the root ball and the same depth as the root ball. The last steps are to make sure it's level with the surface of the soil and backfill the hole with soil.

How do you Grow Jujube Trees?

To grow a Jujube Fruit Tree efficiently, you'll want to plant it in the fall or early spring and ensure the location gets at least 6 hours of sun per day. The Jujube tree belongs in the 5th USDA hardiness zone. Make sure to space the trees 10-15 feet apart. After the jujube tree is planted, water and apply mulch around the base of the tree.

How do you Prune Jujube Trees?

Start by removing any dead or diseased branches and thinning out the canopy. Prune back longer branches until they are your desired size and ensure no two branches are growing too closely together. Lastly, make sure no branches are growing in a downward or upward direction.
