I'm providing information from the Texas A&M web site. Even though this is a "thornless" cultivar, some individual trees may still have thorns so inspect the tree before you buy it to make sure that it does not have thorns.

The "Moraine" cultivar should not have seed pods as this should be a non-seeding cultivar. It also has a more stable branching structure than many of the other cultivars. It is a very fast growing hardwood tree that is long lived - approximately 70 years.

It is also known to be tolerant of salt.
