Hi, I want to purchase a Jujube tree. Are they self-fertile? Do they survive a zone 8 winter? And what are the sweetest varieties? Is Li good?

Jujube is well adapted to all parts of Texas. The better varieties for fresh use are 'Honey Jar,' 'Sugar Cane,' 'Li,' 'Shanxi Li,' 'Sherwood' and 'Chico'. Of these the largest is 'Shanxi Li' and the smallest is 'Honey Jar.' 'Honey Jar' is the juiciest. 'Chico' matures in mid to late season and 'Sherwood' is the last of these to ripen in early October. 'Li,' 'Shanxi Li,' 'Honey Jar' and 'Sugar Cane' ripen in August and early September. Jujubes are self fertile so only one tree is necessary for fruit production. Best wishes with your new tree!
