Progress on Jujube (Ber) trees

The new school has not yet opened, but somebody has been watering the trees and also planted some Irises under the trees.
The tree at the Gurdwara is doing nice. This is Hari Singh with Manjit Singh who was visiting from California.

In the archives there are pictures of the jujube trees being planted. They came to us as 'bare root' trees and had no signs of growth when we planted them. Although we don't have pictures for some of the other trees, at different locations, all of them have shown signs of growth.

Satnam Hari Singh,

After being inspired by your tree growing, my wife and I started looking at internet to see what trees that are found in Punjab/India but not here that can be grown in our area. It is amazing how drought resistant these jujube are and how it takes a long time for them to get going from seeds. When do they start bearing fruit?
