Non-fruiting male Cudrania variety with male flowers. Female varieties NORRIS, DARROW, and SEEDLESS can bear fruits without pollination but if the male is nearby yield is higher and fruits are larger. Male trees are smaller and more compact than female trees.
The male flowers turn yellow as the pollen ripens and is released, while the wind-pollinated female flowers develop many small stigmas over the surface of the immature fruit. Male trees occasionally have a few female flowers which will set fruit.
Pollination: The Male will cause seeds to be produced in the fruit of any Female Che variety within pollination range. If you have a Female Che that isn’t producing well or drops all its fruit, and you don’t mind seeds in the fruit, then plant a Male Che within 4 - 5 meters of the Female.
