This year I have grown some Jojoba (pronounced Hohoba) seedlings. Plants I have growing here at the Farm have done really well with minimum watering and no fertilisation on Banksia sands. Our plants would be nearing 25 years old and are between 1.5 and 2m. They are bushy to the ground and heat, wind and drought tolerant. And are great screening plants. They have never been bothered by any insects or disease.

The females readily seed every year. The liquid wax from their seed has a high economical value. Plants are male or female. Bees absolutely love them when they flower and our bushes sound like they are about to take off.

Here is a link on about their commercial potential, pros and cons. agrifutures.com.au/farm-diversity/jojoba/

I have a lot of time for this long lived plant and it has become one of the high value species within out diverse windbreak systems.
