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)
