You're absolutely right Anisha! First time i' ve learned about cannonball tree and googled it immediately. Atleast the fruit can be enjoyed by the animals. This forum is really awesome. Thanks!

Bsbullie, thanks for your input. I also wanted to try planting cherimoya but it's difficult to find seedlings here in the PH. Also, from what i've read online is that Cherimoya needs a cold climate to thrive.  I didnt knw about ilama i'll look it up maybe i can grow them here.

Wow you're close to harvesting ur own fruit soon then Huertas. I was not a fan of atemoya before due to difficulty in pollination but when i tasted it all the hard works will be worth it.

DL, I initially thought i was planting breadfruit that's why i planted them in the open field right away. But thanks for the advise tho i dont know how to shade them now.


You can use my method. It's called "improvise to the best of your abilities" :P!
Went to the forest you see behind. Cut 3 trees, sticked them into the ground at triangle shape, and stapled shade net to the sticks.




Thanks DL for the suggestion. Your idea is neat. Since i am in Qatar now i can ask my farmhand to install something like yours with my small trees for shade.

The tree look great and growing really fast. I planted some same looking trees at my farm in the PI first week of december. I hope they grow as fast as yours tho i still dont know if they are pedalai or tipolo/tipuho trees which are endemic in the Philippines.

This Tipuho you mean? from Batanes? Does yours have the same.round leaf no segments?

Okay at this rate I will end up scrabbling up the boonie from the northernmost Phil island all the way down South - change of plans will need approval from the engineer. Whereabouts in the Phil are you from?

At the moment the leaves of my plants are the same as yours when they are smaller. But the leaves of tipolo/tipuho trees when small looks exactly the same. I just remembered that the leaves of my plants are hairy under the leaves but not so on the surface while the tipuho introduced to me was hairy even on the surface.

Some time ago I posted some pictures of my seedlings of Artocarpus, to know if they are Pedalai or A.  elasticus, Most people said they appeared to be more A. elasticus.,
However comparing the picture posted by bangkok and my, they look very alike
I continue with the doubt :

Hi RICBITAR! Just want to know if you're finally able to identify your plant. Is it pedalai?

Another fruit i just came to know recently. It was introduce by the nursery man saying the fruit really taste great. The problem with the fruit is it is easily bruised, the reason its not available in the market. I planted a single seedling bcoz i have not done my research at the time but maybe i should add atleast 6 more based on what i learned about it through this forum and google.

In really good conditions you might expect fruit in 7 or 8 years and really need to prune heavily to shorten them.The adult leaves can be huge also.It is true that that shelter is needed until they are at least 1.5m tall.

Yes i plan to keep them in manageable height. When i got my farm there are already huge mango trees that climbing them really looks dangerous. I dont want that in the new trees i've planted. I can ask my farm hand for some temporary shade to be installed soon since summer in our place is reaĺly very warm.

Breadfruit is the same way, they like part shade for the first little bit.

Thanks for the advise. Im still in the lookout for some breadfruit seedlings. I hope i can get them by June so its the start of the rainy season. Weather by that time hopefully is ideal for seedlings.

PI is a lot warmer maybe i can get these trees to fruit in 3-4 yrs time if they are pedalai as google claims. Sarawakensis fruit looks like a smaller marang but it is also not very popular, i cannot get enough info on it.
Don't think pedalai will normally fruit nearly that fast even in very warm tropical areas. The trees need to get quite large before they start fruiting.

Yeah i know i'm being too optimistic with this pedalai. maybe i'ĺl just wait for my marang trees to atleast start fruiting by that time. Thanks for the info appreciate it very much.

I think thai sweet tamarind is getting popular lately. We have also just planted two grafted trees recently. But we have chopped off a few huge native variety a few yrs back. The nursery man informed us that the fruit of native variety is getting expensive since supply is getting less. Lucky me i kept a couple which continously fruited until this day.

Definitely not A. altilis or A. camansi. Could be A. sarawakensis, but more likely pedalai. I have several pedalais in pots that look the same as those pics. For the first year or so the leaves are non-lobed, then for a few years they are lobed and huge, and then they go back to being non-lobed and smaller again.

Appreciate the info mike. Do they fruit as soon as they go back to non-lobed stage or do we wait for more years?

I can see those 2 new pics, but they are tiny and don't seem to link to full-size pics.
Erwin I can't make image larger also, but this pic surely looks like my Pedalai when it was younger, marang are also trifoliate leaves when young but they don't  grow as large as the Pedalai ones,

I wonder why pedalai is not popular in my country like marang. I hope internet article that says pedalai fruit in 3 to 4 yrs is accurate.

Thanks durianlover for the pics! The foliage of the young tree looks the same with mine. Can you tell how old the tree before it loses the finger like thing on its leaves? I dont know if you're familiar with artocarpus blancoi it is more common in the PI and have similar leaves with pedalai on young trees and they're commonly known as tipolo tree.
