Pedalai

    10 responses

abyssquick starts with ...
I am wondering what experience people have growing Pedalai. I just got 3 trees, and am curious what sort of lighting they can tolerate. I'm planting my tallest one (4 feet) in 1/2 sun to begin with.

I have two others, and wonder at what age / height they may take full sun.


Any experience growing these artocarpus would be greatly appreciated!

Enormous tree and very little fruit . Unsure as to cold tolerance . I just got one little tree I am about to plant out . Protection for the first few years would be advisable for you in marginal area.

We had one in Darwin and it was spectacular! It grew so enormous and had plenty of fruit. The leaves are huge. Our tree was in part shade but once it grew bigger than the house was more in the sun. It thrived in the wet season. Some dumb tree lopper cut the wrong tree down while we were at work so she’s now shot again from the root but will take approx 7 years to fruit again. I am seeking seeds to try and grow more. Where can I buy some?? Anyone???

A friend may have some for sale in a few months , she had a fruit earlier this year .. It had fallen and bruised so I missed out on tasting it . Might the sub-tropics be marginal for this sp. ? My one litle seedling is struggling , hope we get some rains soon .

I have a Pedalai growing which would be at least 30yrs old - it is about 50ft and magnificent to look at, but has never set any fruit - only see shrivled brown tennis ball size droppings. I have been wondering if it needs a special insect for fertilization.

A few years back, I tried in Brisbane (no frost here just minimum of 5C in Winter) 2 very robust seedlings of 2 ft tall. They lasted a couple of Winter and then perished.

Isy , do you have many other Artocarpus spp. growing around Speewah ? It could need cross pollination from another Pedalai tree .
Or severe pruning to allow fruits to be picked . A much lower more open tree should flower more .
Trellising experiments locally have shown promising results on many exotic fruit trees .

I have one in a 100 litre pot. It's about 2.5 meters tall and a perfect umbrella for my terrace.

It's less than 2 years old now and doesn't grow any taller which is great.

The leaves have changed to a more round shape. I hope it will fruit in the pot one day because it will stay in there for ever.

It didn't fruit at all, that takes more time i guess.

Also 2.5 metre isn't much i guess, this tree grows fast and will become huge in full soil.

I have never tasted or seen one myself, hope to find them soon on Penang island Malaysia.
