The Marang resembles both the jackfruit and the breadfruit in appearance. This stately tree is of South East Asian origin. Contrasting the marang's robust aroma, the fruit is succulent and mildly flavoured, regarded as superior to both jackfruit and chempedak. Less cold tolerant than the breadfruit it willgrow only in North QLD. Not suitable for temperate climates.

The divided fruit segments can be consumed raw or as in India, eaten with spices. They are pleasantly subacid with good flavour. The flesh is usually sucked off the seeds as the pulp clings firmly to them. Take care not to swallow the slippery seeds. By removing the seeds it makes a tasty jam or jelly. There are two forms of the Santol the red and the yellow, both have large round textured yellow fruit with a very thick velvety skin. The tree itself is very elegant in appearance with large lime to deep green leaves and offering occasional contrasting red leaves. In its native setting it is a large tree that will buttress with age, it has low growing branches and makes an excellent street or shade tree. Young plants are frost sensitive and will require protection from cold, however once established they can handle a light brief frost.

I tried salak fruit in Cambodja end of January. I took 7 seeds to home and put them to pot in 30.1.2017. It took about 6 weeks before there was little sprout on the surface. Today 19.3. there is 5 little salak babies on the surface of the pot.

Easy to grow, but need tropical climate to establish quickly. Strawberry taste dominates the taste. Excellent fruit and very special.
