Yes I have 3 yang mei but have heard some people get fruit from one tree. The kei apples are like a sour apricot, okay but not good enough to put up with the huge spines. I planted the seeds, not sure what I will do with them if they sprout.

How did these Kei apples taste, Doug. I gave my son about 8 trees which should be about fruiting age now. With Yang Mei, I think have to have a male and female plant, same with Kei apples.

Yes Dianne, as the saying goes. Not what you know but who you know.  The yangmei( bayberries) are really nice strawberry/raspberry taste with a slight herbal taste thrown in.
