"in some areas of az, leaf-cutter bees could strip juju trees bare. Trees will not die, but with many of their solar panels ruined, they won't be fruitful.
three to four months from flowers to mature fruits, usually. You…"
"couldn't find the preying mantis, but i notice the crescent notches on your juju leaves which indicate leafcutter bees in your area. Jujus generally recover from this, and the mantis sure helps stop the onslaught if it could…"
"your juju is looking good!
btw, probably safer that you just cut/pinch the suckers for now, as pulling them will tug on the roots of main tree and compromise the entire tree. Being recently planted, the roots probably…"
"moringas will probably be ok in moderately poor drainage--and besides, there's not much to lose if you try. Seeds are cheap and quite available nowadays, and they grow fast, you could even grow them as potted specimens.."
"i hope you get to like your new trees. And when you say 'outside of the world of peaches/apples/plums', i would like to add that jujubes and morus nigra mulberries could live and be supremely productive…"

"I can't even tell you how intrigued I am about these jujubes! Why I haven't heard more about them is beyond me, especially since they seem to be the perfect tree for my climate! I usually place a yearly order with Bay Laurel…"
"i usually recommend the li variety, not just because it is good, but also because it is the most common and thus most readily available as a potted tree(it is hard to recommend something that is rare and relatively pricey, and…"
Your garden and landscape are just so beautiful! I say your 'So' jujube tree. Here is thmy oldest So at Alcalde. 2014-04-23%2011.36.31.jpg
Are you in NV or AZ? I am looking for a collaborator for a jujube pre-proposal for the Western SARE grant in AZ. Did you know any jujube person in cooler area of AZ? I contacted Glenn Wright but he is near Yuma which maybe too hot for jujubes.
