Humidity has as much to do with different varieties of jujube bearing as
does cold hardiness zones. I am talking about humidity during the blooming
time. Each variety was developed in China to fit a particular area over many
100 years. We in this country are just now finding out where different
varieties will grow. One thing has been determined, that is that the dry
areas of this country are better suited for jujubes.
