Winter delight jujubes

I've just started harvesting my first crop of these. This has to be the worst jujube I've ever tasted. I'll give the tree another year to see what happens.

I'm also picking honey jar jujubes now, they're great, as always

Perhaps it is primarily a drying jujube. The name might imply that.

RE: Winter delight jujubes

I have had several varieties that were nearly inedible, probably drying ones. I noticed some places selling that one pulled it, maybe they came to a similar conclusion.

My jujubes this year again did not set very well. I'm not sure what the problem is but its proving to be the biggest problem with them.


RE: Winter delight jujubes

I'm hoping it's just an off year. We're having a record draught, only half the normal 32"/year. My Contorted So's, which are normally great, are only fair; & my Li's, which are normally good, are poor. Only my Honey Jars taste great, though its too early to tell about the Sugar Canes yet. I've tried to increase watering but I'm only able to do that once a week. The Winter Delights are the largest jujube's I've ever seen, & lots of flesh to them.

I had terrible fruit set in 08-09, but 2010-11 have been banner years.

RE: Winter delight jujubes

This year they're pretty good! Bigger than Li's. Maybe not quite as tasty as Sugar Canes, but still very good.

I hadn't expected jujube's to change flavor year to year. I know other fruits do, but I'd thought jujube's would be constant.

RE: Winter delight jujubes

Another great year for Winter Delight Jujubes. Li's and Honey Jars also very good. Tigertooths are kinda bland. My fruit set is better, I'm giving them more water.

RE: Winter delight jujubes

My Li's last year (1st crop) tasted like sweet cardboard. I'm sure hoping they improve.
