LAKOOCHA OR MONKEY JACK

lakoochaBotanical Name: Artocarpus lacucha
Description

Also known as monkey jack or lakuchi in India; tampang and other similar native names in Malaya; as lokhat in Thailand. The deciduous tree is 6-9 m tall, the large, leathery leaves, downy on the underside. Male and female flowers are borne on the same tree, the former orange-yellow, the latter reddish. The fruits are nearly round or irregular, 2 to 5 in (5-12.5 cm) wide, velvety, dull-yellow tinged with pink, with sweet sour pulp which is occasionally eaten raw but mostly made into curries or chutney. The male flower spike, acid and astringent, is pickled.

Lakoocha or Monkey Jack

Used for spicy perposes in many parts of india like tamarind | T .s. Hegde - Hitlalli ; Yellapur, North Kanara, KARNA 06-May-2008

Lakoocha or Monkey Jack

The seedlings need to be planted immediately. They lose viability very fast. Also, be very careful while transplanting the sapling. One good bet is to let it mature for as long as one or three years, even in a small pot. But it's very hardy thereafter. | Vithal C Nadkarni - Mumbai, INDIA 09-Aug-2008
