Ziziphus jujuba 'Sherwood.' The fruit of Sherwood has an uncanny resemblance to dates when dried. It's also fantastic fresh, when the color turns from green to reddish brown. This selection is a little taller and narrower than the other varieties and is not as thorny. Ripens late, mid-October, so not a good choice for areas with early frosts. Pruned to fit into 4' x 1' x 1' boxes, grown in 5 gal containers.
