Maclura tricuspidata is a tree native to East Asia, occasionally grown for its fruit, somewhat similar to that of the related mulberry (Morus spp.). It is also known by common names including cudrang, mandarin melon berry, silkworm thorn, zhe or che (Chinese: 柘; pinyin: zhè), and Chinese mulberry (but not to be confused with Morus australis also known by that name). It grows up to 6 m high.
