Title: ARTOCARPUS ID ?
Post by: vitiga on August 12, 2018, 09:07:13 AM
Could anyone please confirm id of that artocarpus. I reckon it is a marang but not sure. That young tree is about 4 years old.

Quite an interesting one then. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it accurately so then I can register it in the collection with the right label. From what I remember those trees are from seeds I got from Indonesia about 4 years ago. But as I have many all over the property, I lost labels for some of them including that one.

I can only tell you what is not among less common species. Not anisophyllus, elasticus, hirsutus, not keleang, maranag, pedalai....Might be one of those I don't have: a. rigidus, a. tamaran, a. lakoocha and few other species I don't remember by name at the moment. Also Indonesian sellers had few ultra rare recently discovered species without scientific name. Just artocarpus spp., not described in any literature. I bought one of those myself from Indonesian sellers about 4 years ago. I don't have that tree anymore. So, maybe that's what you have.  It's going to be long wait before you find out for sure :)

I don't think it can be lakoocha. I have ordered seeds of a.rigidus in the past, but cannot find any pics of young tree/leaves to compare.

Yes I agree, after close look at it, it is definitely not a marang. But I still have difficulties to distinguish juvenile kwaimuk, lakoocha, nitidus etc... for me they all look pretty similar when juvenile.

It could be lakoocha. Definitely not kwai muk. I have nitidus, but the leaves are not glossy like that.
