 Artocarpus hypargyraeus
Family: Moraceae
Kwai Muk
Origin: China
small tree 10-20 ftfull sunsemi-shaderegular waterethnomedicalediblesubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeincuded in CD catalog

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. They say it is the ugliest fruit but the best flavor! 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 sensitive as jackfruit or breadfruit and tolerate light frost.
