Jojoba, also known as a Goatnut, it is moderately to fast growing  long-lived large shrub. Flowers are yellow and bloom in the late spring or early summer. Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants, the “goatnut” fruits only being found on female plants with male plants nearby. Female plants produce hard, brown fruit from which a liquid wax is extracted for shampoos, cosmetics and other products. Jojoba prefers light, coarsely textured soils, good drainage and full sun. It also tolerates salinity and poor-nutrient soils. Add supplemental water to increase growth rate.
