no longer available Chinese Mulberry (Cudrania tricuspidata) POLLENIZER & DARROW together on one tree

The combination of pollinator and female DARROW variety on one plant saves space in your garden as you do not have to plant two plants. It reliably ensures a rich setting of large fruits. Cudrania reach first bearing 3-4 years after planting.

Pollinator: the pollenizer does not produce any fruit, but without its flowers the female Cudrania produces no yield

Female variety DARROW: early ripening female Cudrania variety. Compared to other strongly growing varieties, the tree grows only moderately. Requires minimal maintenance and is drought tolerant. Endures poor soils like a mulberry tree. Young shoots have small thorns that lose with age.
Origin: USA, breeder Dr. George M. Darrow
Vigour: medium-vigorous tree with a height of 3 to 5 m and a width of up to 4 m. Tree growth depends on pruning. Is grafted on the Maclura pomifera rootstock.
Site requirements: full sun location. Che will grow in a range of soil types. Deep, well drained loam is the best.
Blossom: monoecious, female. Female flowers of variety Darrow need pollinator with male flowers to create fruits.
Fruit: on average 2.5 - 3.5 cm, red or maroon-red. The che fruit is not a berry but a collective fruit, in appearance somewhat like a round mulberry crossed with a lychee. The ripe fruits are an attractive color with a juicy, rich red flesh inside.
Taste: when fully soft ripe fruits develop a cantaloupe to papaya flavor. It is important that the fruits be thoroughly ripe to be at their best.
Harvest season: the fruits ripen in August. The stem does not bleed white sap when the fruit is picked fully ripe. Fruit ripens on the tree individually, not all at once, and does not ripen further once picked.
Yield: medium, regular yields if pollenizer is nearby. The Che begin to bear at an early age. The tree tends to drop ripening fruit when very young, but gets better at retention with age.
Frost hardiness: frost-resistant throughout Central Europe
Pests and diseases: no pests or diseases have been noted
