Diospyros mespiliformis | Jackal-berry tree for sale | Jakkalsbessie
The Jackal-berry tree is frost sensitive and marginally drought tolerant. It is a fast growing, evergreen tree with a wide spreading crown. Its simple, green-grey leaves cast a dense shade. Diospyros mespiliformis distinguishes male and female trees. Only the latter bear berry-like fruit. Jackal-berry has a formidable tap root. It is an excellent choice for a large garden or park. In our experience Diospyros mespiliformis responds well to pruning and can be planted in a large container. Use this method if you want to plant it in a small garden.
Value to honeybees: Nectar, N0-3?; Pollen, P0-1?; Flowering months 9-3, (10-11). (See blog-post "The bee-value of South Africa's trees" for an explanation of codes)
