Is there a discernable difference between Mexican Crema and Creme Fraiche?

Other than the price?

    Check out the "crema" section in the link below. I use the cheaper Mexican version in savory dishes---it's not as sour as our sour cream, but not as sweet as creme fraiche. And it won't curdle.

    For pastries, stick with the French.
