Jujube Lang

Jujube Lang


Description: The Lang jujube tree is a deciduous fruit tree that produces medium to large-sized fruit. The fruit is typically oval-shaped with smooth, glossy skin that turns from green to yellowish-green when ripe. It has a sweet, crisp, and apple-like flavor with hints of caramel or brown sugar. The tree itself has a spreading growth habit with thorny branches and small, ovate green leaves.

Size: Lang jujube trees can reach a mature height of around 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) and a spread of 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters). However, the actual size of the tree can vary depending on factors such as growing conditions, pruning, and rootstock. Some growers may opt for dwarf or semi-dwarf varieties for smaller spaces or container growing.

Best Growing Zones: Lang jujube trees are well-suited to USDA hardiness zones 6 to 10. They prefer regions with hot, dry summers and mild winters. These trees are highly adaptable and can tolerate a wide range of climates, including both arid and humid conditions. They thrive in full sun exposure and require a long, warm growing season to produce fruit.

Soil Requirements: Lang jujube trees prefer well-drained soil with good fertility and a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (around 6.0 to 7.0). They can tolerate various soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it provides good drainage. Prior to planting, it's beneficial to amend the soil with organic matter such as compost or aged manure to improve soil structure and fertility.

Maintenance: Proper care and maintenance are essential for healthy growth and fruit production. Prune the tree annually during the dormant season to remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches, as well as to shape the canopy and encourage airflow. Water regularly, especially during dry periods and when the tree is fruiting, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Fertilize the tree annually with a balanced fertilizer formulated for fruit trees, following the manufacturer's instructions.
