Question from: Paul Quinton
Posted on: February 16, 2003

I have just ordered some Zizyphus spinosa seeds from you. When they arrive, do I need to give them a stratification process or will they germinate if I simply pot them up in the spring?

Chinese jujube (Zizyphus spinosa) seeds do not require any special treatment such as stratification to promote germination. We find that that they readily germinate at room temperature.
