KWAI MUK Artocarpus hypargyreus

Kwai MukThe Kwai Muk is native to China. It is a slow-growing, slender tree that can be grown as an ornamental specimen plant due to its erect growing habit and attractive long slender leaves.

The round fruits have a velvety, brownish, thin, tender skin.The fruit is best when harvested from the tree completely ripe. When mature the pulp is orange-red to red, soft, acid to subacid and of an excellent flavour. The fruit can be seedless or may contain 1 to 7 small pale seeds. The pulp is delicious eaten raw or can be preserved or sundried. Self pollinating, Ripening from February to April.

The trees are not as cold tolerant as initially thought and are injured by brief drops in temperature to -2°C. Mature trees have endured -3°C which is similar to a mango or jakfruit.
