does this tree have thornes or seed pods?
Kim B on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has thorns. We planted the tree immediately and watched as it came
out of dormancy. It really began to grow and got lots of leaves. We did not
notice any seed pods though. We have had the tree less than 1 year and
I know trees have to mature. We are hoping it flowers this year! Thanks! Darla

The tree is growing nicely. You guys uphold your word when you say you will replace anything that does not grow. I plan on ordering more stuff in the spring.
