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).

Yes preferably thats what im looking for.  Tried seeds awhile back but none sprouted.  Just fruits and exotics has it if I make it there again. Someone else near here in Panama city posted them for sale on craigslist before but alass hasnt ever again that ive seen.
