Ziziphus trees are able to thrive and produce fruits in arid or semi-arid regions. One idealist describes this species as "a gift of mother nature which symbolizes the productive capacity of the seemingly infertile ecosystem". A suitable description of its value is that it produces what the desert dwellers need: fruit, fodder, and fuel. These species are able to survive in extremely high temperatures. Most of the Ziziphus we plant are first grafted by us.
