hi wdkerek.   i had never heard of these so i looked them up.  what an interesting fruit!  chock full of good stuff! 

it looks like it would be pretty easy to grow here in the south...disease resistant, likes long hot summers, drought tolerant.  nice!

i can see why you are looking for someone local to share.  they start at 40 bucks for a 4' starter tree!  dang.

not sure where you are located, but i did see a few nurseries online that sell them if you can't find a local source.

 Were you looking for fruit, trees or cuttings?  If you are looking for trees , I would highly suggest that you order them from Roger Meyer in California. They come bare root in the spring ready to plant. Roger passed away a while back but i believe his family still runs the nursery.
  Jujube are maintenance free and bare excellent fruit but be aware that they do have their bad side. The trees will send up shoots from the roots in all directions from the tree. Don't plant this tree in a location that you can't mow the roots as they come up. They have thorns , lots of thorns.
  Jujubes are really good for fresh eating and dehydrating. Hard to believe but they make the very best syrup that I have ever made.
