I heard about the “raisin tree” (Hovenia dulcis) a few years back but have never seen one for sale… until I worked the Kanapaha plant sale and ran into Adam from Xenoflora Nursery.
He had one, along with some other amazing plants (check their website out – I’ve never heard of most of their offerings).
I bought it and it will be planted to my front yard food forest within the next week or so.
I’m always on the lookout for rare edible species that can handle the cold and the heat here in N/C Florida. I’ll let you all know how this puppy does.
Here’s a little video on the Japanese raisin tree from Daley Fruit Tree Nursery in Australia:

I live in Ocala. I will be ordering one soon. I’m also going to buy a white mulberry
Great! They’re both beautiful trees.
Hey DAvid, any update on how your Japonese Raisin tree is doing? has it fruited yet? any idea where i can buy a specimen? Thanks!
I sold the tree before moving from my land. Not sure how it’s doing now.
