Oh no!  Try corresponding with Lon R.- he has fruited jujube in Oregon, 
though I don't know if it was maritime, and might be able to help you!  
Might be you would need to pick your earliest cultivar, put it in a 
heat-absorbing pot in the most hot, sunny and punishing summer-like spot you 
have, with southern exposure and something to reflect heat onto the plant 
during the day and release some heat at night...  just some thoughts.  I 
know my jujubes have not liked being planted in less than the hottest and 
sunniest spot I have- they survived but never fruited if put in half-sun or 
a cooler spot.  Sorry, but I hope there is still hope!
