Ziziphus jujuba 'GA866.' A jewel of the Chico Research Station, this jujube is renowned for its dizzying sugar content and concentrated apple flavor. The 2" long fruit is eaten dried, fresh, or made into a sublime ice cream. Needs a long hot summer to ripen. Ready to harvest earlier than other varieties, in mid September, so good for areas with early frost. These trees have a 1/2" caliper, no branching as of April 2016, pruned to 3'.
