Re: [nafex] Rhamnus

Z. jujube is plant of warmer areas and I do not think that it will survive
minus 28 F.  In fact my experience with the common commercial varieties
grown in North India is that the scions die when the temperature goes just -
2 C.  Only stocks, which are the seedlings ofg wild types remain alive.

There is a wild jujuba bearing inferior type of round fruits which grow in
the Himalayan mid  hills of North West India.  This may withstand upto 20
F(may be).
