Maclura tricuspidata is usually a small tree, but sometimes multistemmed, with its sweet and tasty edible fruits, this fully hardy, small tree is well suitable for any garden, even possible to grow it in a large container. The Chinese Raspberry Tree is dioecious, but most male plants will bear some fruits, too. However by planting a few together highly likely ensures both genders for a higher yield. A mature female plant bears thousands of fruits which are usually red in colour, but sometimes yellow, and can be harvested from September. Its simple, glossy leaves are quite ornamental, just like the juicy, smooth fruits (with a diameter of 3-4cm). It is not fussy to soil conditions.
