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.

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.
