About this Reference Manual
This reference section is a spin-off of the original blog, which was intended to be a simple blog on jujube info and care, but which quickly became a meandering mess on botany, soil, microbes and biochemistry!
That blog has since been renamed The Biosphere Blog — and still exists, where I’ll continue writing about those subjects very dear to me. Many are of course still relevant to jujube trees, but in a more broad sense.
This Reference Manual section is the new home for what the blog was meant to be: topics specific to jujube trees and fruit only. And in a more formal book-like format rather than the informal style of a blog, which should make finding information a lot easier.
Some chapter headings in the Table of Contents display in italics. These are posts from the original blog which have been cross-posted (duplicated) here in this reference manual. The vast majority of information here, however, will either be original content, or be completely rewritten from other existing blog material.
