Hi Scott
I have a young Che from Edible Landscaping in Va. It's a female. It bore
some nice fruit, but this was much earlier in the summer with the early
figs. They were kinda bland, but cooked up nice with the figs. Maybe when
the tree matures the fruit will sweeten some.
The leaves are starting to become yellowed somewhat now (some) ...fall is
here. Fruit long gone. Still making some figs, though, and watered them
today . Got a couple Che grafted onto Lucky's osage orange seedlings and
they look good.
Pete in z 8b, SE Louisiana
