Tigertooth is a long, slender date-shaped fruit, up to 2.5 inches in length. Very sweet and a favorite of Paul Miller, who was the curator at the Gainesville, FL jujube collection. As most jujube varieties, young trees can have juvenile thorns. Older trees are much less thorny. Trees are of small stature in Zones 6-7 reaching 12 to 15 feet. Warmer areas height and spread can be 18 to 25 feet. Zone 6-9.
