Post by: D-Grower on August 02, 2021, 08:44:46 AM
Wondering peoples thoughts on the edibility and overall tastfulness of Japanese raisin trees and che fruit aka mandarin melon berry? Also does anyone have shippable young plants of these? May be interested in getting some if tge responses are good. Also maybe chocolate vine too.

Not sure about taste on the Che as fruits never formed when the tree bloomed (presumably a male tree), but we pulled it because it put out thorny suckers all over the place. If I had it to do over again, I would try to get the self pollinating variety that I have heard people talk about grafted to osage orange (which does not sucker).
