Macho in Spanish means male. This is a male cultivar that does not, of course, bear fruit, so it should not contribute to the tree escaping cultivation to end up producing an invasive population somewhere. This cultivar was developed by Bill Wandell, the owner of the huge Wandell Nursery west of Champaign, Illinois, that has introduced a number of woody plant cultivars into the trade.
