Ziziphus parryi is a bushy shrub with many intricate branches forming a thorny tangle which may approach 4 metres (13 ft) in height.
The leaves are deciduous and are absent for much of the year, leaving the shrub a naked thicket of brown or grayish twigs. The ends of the twigs taper into sharp-tipped thorns. The membranous olive green leaves are up to 2.5 centimeters long.
