    Frank - they look great! I've been thinking about trying them out, trying to figure what will work best in my area. I don't know of anyone around here that has them. Any suggestions?

      You may want to do some reading on growingfruit.org; several jujube threads over there. Jujubes are hardy to zone 5 or so but some folks struggle to ripen fruit without sufficient summer heat and in areas much warmer than zone 5. I think at least one person on that forum in zone 5 gets fruit but I think it requires some special effort to do so.

    Casey, check out ediblelandscaping online nursery. I remember seeing jujubes being sold for zones 5 and 6.

    Casey - I second edible landscaping. I got honey jar, sugar cane, and GA 866 from them this spring. They haven't been tested by our winter yet. They came 3-4 feet tall and looked really good. Honey Jar has really taken off. The other two still look good, but haven't grown much yet. I heard about a guy who grows Li and Lang successfully in Iowa City which is 5B. If any of mine die this winter, I'll probably replace them with one of those two.
    Iowa. Zone 5A.
