Two of the varieties we are trying to find information on are: Jujube
(Ziziphus jujuba), Chinese Date; and Turkish Tree Hazel (Corylus colurna).
If anyone has other suggestions of tree crops which would likely survive
and produce in his area, your comments would be most welcome. We have been
looking towards Russia and north eastern China as a source of ideas as we
thought tree crops grown in those areas would most likely be drought
tolerant and winter hardy.
