Planting & Care

Sunlight: Full sun

Soil: Well-drained soils of any type: sands, loams, clays, caliche, etc. Does well in disturbed soils and poor soils and tolerates salinity and occasional flooding.

Water: Water regularly to get your tree well-established, at least during its first year in your yard. After that, water during dry spells when we ve had no rainfall.

Fertilizer: Fertilize 3 times a year - spring, summer and fall - with a good quality granular fertilizer.

Special Feature:
Jerusalem thorn is highly adapted to life in the desert. It has largely done away with leaves that lose water through evaporation and transpiration, producing its food instead within the photosynthetic tissue of the bark.

Native Americans harvested the seeds of Jerusalem thorn which they sun dried for storage and parched over dry heat before eating.
Ornamental use:

  • A popular, fast-growing tree widely used as an ornamental and hedge plant in warm regions.
  • The foliage and pods have been used as emergency forage for livestock, as well as by wildlife.
  • Bees produce fragrant honey from the flowers.
