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.

SAN FRANCISCO - All Tara Hui wanted to do was plant some pears and plums and cherries for the residents of her sunny, working-class neighborhood, a place with no grocery stores and limited access to fresh produce. But officials in this arboreally challenged city, which rose from beneath a blanket of sand dunes, don't allow fruit trees along San Francisco's sidewalks, fearing the mess, the rodents and the lawsuits that might follow. So when a nonprofit planted a purple-leaf plum in front of Hui's Visitacion Valley bungalow 31/2 years ago - all flowers and no fruit, so it was on San Francisco's list of sanctioned species - the soft-spoken 41-year-old got out her grafting knife.

Citrus needs to be watered more often than other fruit trees because of the relatively shallow roots, but don't overdo it. Evenly spaced irrigations are the key to preventing fruit drop and splitting. A good soaking every two weeks is often recommended in summer. Leaves yellowing between the veins in summer are a sign of chlorosis. Cure by fertilizing with trace elements such as iron or zinc, available at nurseries. Most plants don't need fertilizing in summer.

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.
