According to Roger Meyer, a nursery owner who specializes in subtropical fruit trees and plants, the jujube (pronounced ju-JU-bee) is a tree for all reasons. Consider its attributes: The jujube is a handsome tree, it bears copious quantities of delicious fruit and it thrives in most landscaping situations, even on lawns, with very little care.

SUNNY YEUNG, team manager for the undefeated Blue Blazers under-8 soccer squad, was handing out shiny, mahogany red treats during pregame warmups. "Have a date, Coach," she said to me. "They're from my tree." "These are jujubes," I said, recognizing the golf-ball-sized fruits from one of my favorite patio plants. "Dates grow on palm trees, not tree trees." "They're not dates?" she asked incredulously. "Then why do all the markets call them dates?" Why, indeed. Perhaps it's all in the name.

Question: I rent a house that has many fruit trees in the backyard. During the last fruit-picking season, I had a problem with my landlord, as well as her family, coming into my yard at all hours of the day and night to pick the fruit. When I moved in, it was agreed that I would care for the trees in exchange for a share of the fruit. I don't mind sharing, but I do mind that they didn't ask permission or notify me before coming onto the property to pick the fruit.

A serene 10-acre retreat, set down like a paradox in the middle of Encino in a well-to-do-neighborhood. The grounds are lush with oaks and pines, roses and birds of paradise, fruit trees and isolated garden paths and duck pond.

Beau Bridges and his wife, Wendy, have sold their home in gated Hidden Hills for $2.4 million - twice what they originally paid. The sale was a while in the making, however. They first listed the country English-style house for sale in 2010 at $3.25 million and later turned to leasing. Designed by architect Marshall Lewis and built in 1976, the ivy-covered house has a sunken den with a fireplace, a bar, a family room, a billiard area, an office, an ample wine cellar, a sauna, six bedrooms and six bathrooms in about 6,800 square feet of living space.

Things to do this week: Plant bare root vegetables. Roots of artichoke, asparagus and rhubarb are at nurseries this month, and it's an inexpensive way to plant them. You'll also find transplants of many winter vegetables, such as broccoli and lettuce, plus bulbs of garlic, onion and shallots. This is not a good month to sow seed in the garden because the chilly nights make germination difficult. Spray fruit trees again. Spray deciduous fruit trees--peaches in particular--for the second time this winter.
