Planting Ber Apple Trees

The tree has a strong root system and can grow in a variety of temperatures and soil pH levels. The tree is also known as Indian jujube and is frequently confused with jujube or red date.

The plant is generally devoid of pest issues and easy to grow. They require full sun. They can be grown in large pots.

The jujube plant is drought-tolerant to some extent when planted on the ground. However, when potted, regular watering is needed. Water logging is to be avoided.

It is a medium-sized tree, reaching about 10 metres in height but often being shorter than that. It can be kept shorter through pruning. The tree often takes the shape of a large bush as it branches out from the very base. The tree has ornamental value and is used for landscaping purposes.

Indian jujube plants fruit during the winter, though some varieties fruit several times in a year.
