Marang (Artocarpus odoratissimus)

A large rounded fruit with soft spines. The segments taste like marshmellow.

Soil
Characteristics
Wide range of soil types provided drainage is good
Climate Requirements

Warm humid areas in the tropics. Found growing wild in Sarawak.Under cultivation, it grows best in regions with abundant and equally distributed rainfall on rich loamy, well drained soils.

Culture

Cultivated commercially in the Philippines. Trees are grown from seed, and because they are very large trees, should be spaced 7- 14 metres apart. Although 100 segments per fruit are reported in the Philippines, our fruit usually has less than 20 segments which suggests there is a pollination problem.

Harvesting

Trees are very tall and fruit is difficult to harvest. A long bamboo pole with a knife attached is used to cut the stem of the fruit.

Length of time
until first crop
Four to six years.
Marketing Notes

High level of acceptability at the fruit tastings. The segments taste rather like sweet and juicy marshmellow.

 

Food Preparation

Open the fruit and remove the segments on to a plate to be eaten fresh.

Select the seeds and roast them.

Young fruit are eaten as a vegetable in curries.
