The only practical use for it that i have read about is that it is good for turning. The wood is a lot like other fruit woods. It typically doesn’t grow large enough to make lumber.

My personal opinion is that it is one the worst trash trees imported as an ornamental from China They split, break and self destruct in rough weather. They also smell terrible in the spring. Our neighborhood is full of them and there are always huge piles of limbs at the street after a heavy thunderstorm. I am building a new house and had about 10 of them pushed up and hauled off to be burned.
