About 1 1/2 year ago, my dad gave me this little tiny jujube tree and I didn’t it would survive the first winter. But, it did and also it is the first year of this tiny tree to produce some fruit. The only regret is that I planted too close to the japanese maple and the european beech trees, but I really don’t have much space elsewhere.
Prior to writing this blog, I didn’t really know the common name of this particular fruit. Although, I know it is similar to “mark tun” as people back in Laos refers to this fruit. After talking to my landscape buddy and checking his reference books I managed to narrow it down. The official name of this fruit is “Zizyphus Jujube” aka Chinese Apple.
Notices the different sizes of the jujube tree in between the japanese maple and european beech tree. I’m glad that I planted all those trees as soon as I moved in.
