How to Germinate Jujube Seeds in GardenGuides.com

Step 1

Pick the jujube fruit in November. Remove the stone from the center of the fruit, and scrub it under running water to remove any excess pulp.
Step 2
Moisten a handful of sand, push the jujube seed into it and place it in a plastic sandwich bag. Seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator where it should remain for 90 days. Check the sand periodically to make sure that it remains moist.

Step 3

Plant the stone 1 inch deep in a sunny area of the landscape in the spring, when the outside temperatures are over 60 degrees F. Cover the seed with soil and keep the soil moist, but not saturated. If you are planting more than one jujube tree, plant the seeds 15 feet apart.

Thank you for the informative post and for the link. I was looking all over the place for good landscaping guides. I'll have to write this down so that I can keep my jujube plants going.
