The tree can grow to a height of 5.5 meters and up to meters wide. The preferred habitat of Gravelly and well-drained sandy soils in deserts and desert grasslands[181]., with LM soil and N moisture levels. .

Desert Hackberry is a zone hardy plant that has medicinal uses - the medicinal usage rating of Desert Hackberry is 0(Binary/Image)

Celtis pallida is 0 plant, whose flowers bloom typically in 4, and which is pollinated by Bees.

The plant has an edibility rating of 2Fruit - raw. A mealy pleasant acid taste[149]. The fruit is up to 8mm in diameter[227], though most of this is the large seed[K]. The N. American Indians ground the fruit and ate it with parched corn or fat[227]. This means that they probably also ate the seed[K].

Cultivation tips: Succeeds in any reasonably good soil, preferring a good fertile well-drained loamy soil[1, 11, 200]. Succeeds on dry gravels and on sandy soils[200]. Established plants are very drought resistant[200]. The trees prefer hotter summers and more sunlight than are normally experienced in Britain, they often do not fully ripen their wood when growing in this country and they are then very subject to die-back in winter[1, 11, 200]. The trees can be very long-lived, perhaps to 1000 years[200]. A good bee plant[149]. Plants in this genus
are notably resistant to honey fungus[200].

. The plant should best be propagated by Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe in a cold frame[200]. Stored seed is best given 2 - 3 months cold stratification and then sown February/March in a greenhouse[78, 200]. Germination rates are usually good, though the stored seed might take 12 months or more to germinate. The seed can be stored for up to 5 years[113]. As soon as they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots. The leaves of seedlings often have a lot of white patches without chlorophyll, this is normal and older plants produce normal green leaves. Grow the seedlings on in a cold frame for their first winter, and plant them out in the following late spring or early summer[K]. Give them some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors. Cuttings
