How do I kill the jujube trees that come from a tap root in a neighbor's yard. These trees are full of thorns.
You can't really stop them if they are growing from suckers from the neighbors tree. You can cut them off and paint the cut with Roundup and that will kill it back to the root, but I will warn you that doing this may harm the neighbors tree.
We bought three jujube trees in march. two of them are ok. but this one leaves start getting yellow in couple of weeks after purchase then the leaves are dry and fall off now. We don't know what we did wrong and how we can correct it. thanks
Can you include a photo and your climate zone? This can help me to see what is going on. Are they planted near each other, or in separate areas?
My Jujube plant has white powdery substance on it's bark. Is this normal? I bought this Jujube plant from Lowe's 3 months ago. I am located in Sacramento, CA.
This is likely Powdery Mildew.

Hi, Can a jujube tree be grown in a greenhouse in a large pot? We have deer and wild turkeys that eat leaves and fruit off of the trees in our yard. Will the tree produce jujube fruits if not planted in the ground? Please advise. Thanks! George
A greenhouse is a great way to grow trees or plants outside of your growing zone.
I have a couple of jujube trees for quite some time (years) fruit is very small size of a marble why? what do they need that I am not providing ?
Please ensure that you give the tree a fertilizer every few months with high levels of phosphorus and potassium, and ensure the tree gets water during dry periods. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/jujube/
Is it dead? I just paid 75 dollars.
What you describe, "drying out, stems getting brown, like it's dying and leaves brown and crumbly" doesn't sound good, these are dire signs.
The handling and planting technique during potting and water management during and after the planting is critical for avoiding transplant shock and decline. It's possible that the soil root ball was broken, the roots were disturbed or cut or allowed to dry out, or the plant was not watered adequately before and immediately after the transplanting.
The only thing you can do is to keep the soil moist, but not muddy wet, and give it a couple of weeks or a month to respond with new growth.
