Artocarpus ID?
« on: February 22, 2021, 04:25:47 PM »
Hi folks,

Can anyone help ID this tree?  It's about three years old and has sandpaper-like leaves.  Perhaps a variety of breadfruit or other Artocarpus?  Thank you.

This is almost useless but I can tell you what it looks like to be not
Breadfruit
Jak fruit
Kwai muk
Lakoocha
Chempedak
Marang
So probably not any of these

It looks to be a pedalai. Breadfruit have darker leaves, and in the pictures, the leaf lobes are more round compared to a breadfruit.

My vote is for juvenile pedalai (Artocarpus Sericicarpus)!

Thanks folks!  If it's Pedalai, that's the best news I've heard all day!  Just looked up some examples online and it sure appears to be Artocarpus sericicarpus.  Fingers crossed I see hairy, Marang-like fruits on there one day soon! 

Much appreciated!

Thanks a ton.  I feel like I just hit the forest jackpot.  Pedalaiís been on my list of trees to grow, and it sounds like itís been here in front of me all along.  Thanks for helping to ID this beauty!  Happy to share seeds when she bears fruits.

Juvenile foliage varies a bit within species of Artocarpus. Pedalai is the most likely but there are 4 or 5 other contenders like sparrow jack and utu.
