Full Sun to Part Shade. semi-dwarf on Osage Orange Rootstock, space 14′ apart, self fertile

Grafted. Che is also known as Chinese Melon Berry, and tastes like a cross between a fig and a watermelon.  The variety we carry is seedless and completely self-fertile.  If planted near a male Che it will have hard seeds.  Strikingly different and beautiful small trees with attractive clean foliage.  They turn extra eye-catching when loaded with ripe pink-red fruits in the fall.  Fruits are about 1″ diameter, good chewy texture, keep well on the tree.  Fruits resemble a small hedge apple (osage orange), which they are related to.  Somewhat slow growing up to 15′ tall.  Grafted on osage orange rootstock.  zones 6-9 . .
