The Zizyphus jujuba should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.The Zizyphus jujuba should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown. The Zizyphus jujuba is medium in size and 3,5 m in height; in the autumn it assumes a greenwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Zizyphus jujuba develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.

Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.
Watering Zizyphus jujuba
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
