What the heck is this Artocarpus like fruit?
« on: January 12, 2018, 04:07:27 AM »


I was brought this aromatic 21.4kg fruit to identify today. It looks like a big brain with marang like skin tubicles .


It smells and looks like an artocarpus inside with rag but the bulbs of flesh are missing.


The seeds are small and I am reaching down deep and coming up empty. I don't know what it is.

ED: Ah, I see it's myrianthus arboreus!

No help to identify buy it might be immature, despite the size.  A friend harvest her first ever jackfruit last fall before any smell developed.  Despite weighing 40lb, it had no bulbs inside.

No it isn't an immature jackfruit and the seeds are fully formed although small.With the aroma the fruit is mature. It is not Myrianthus and the same person brought a piece of that to identify as well. Treculia seems to be a good guess Karen but is seems more than double the maximum weight of it.

Seems like Treculia africana.
It doesn't have fleshy arils like artocaprus, and only the seeds are edible.
About the size, Helton in Brasil reported to harvest one in 2014 arround 24kg.   http://www.colecionandofrutas.org/treculiaafricana.htm

Ah, my apologies - I interpreted your other post as indicating that this was Myrianthus  :)   I have no experience with Myrianthus so I was ready to take your word on it  ;)

Then I stick with my original guess, lol  ;)  I mean, just to compare with your second pic:
