    Where can I get some viable seed? Does anyone have hints for propagating? Does anyone have any cuttings? In Queensland, the Chinee apple is a declared weed (indian jujube). I would like to obtain some Chinese jujube for my food forest. I know they are grown in Australia, but haven't been able to find a cheap/free source or even a commercial source. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Ice,

    The Diggers Club in Dromana have Zizyphus jujubaea available as bareroots from cuttings - from this you could then graft on varietal stock. Drop them a line and they will be able to arrange delivery. We have an order with them for this winter so we'll see how they go.

    Cheers,

    DD

    From there you have to get varietal stock though ???
    There is a fellow in Toowoomba who is growing. If you are in Qld let me know and I can probably track him down.
    From memory he finally struck a varietal cutting and now it suckers truevto the parent. Way to go.
