Very nice article, thanks for posting. I wonder if the height of the tree is a misprint? Up to 75 meters tall, girth 5 meters?? That would make it quite a super giant!  :o

75 meters is absolutely incredible. This other source (which looks very professionally written) says 45 meters. Interesting to see fruiting tree in a photo below. Fruits do not come from main trunk and branches like regular jackfruit. http://parayilat.blogspot.com/2010/11/anjili-tree-of-many-uses.html

Thanks for posting, good photos. I think the height of 75 meters (246 feet) must be a misprint. That would put it in range of size of giant sequoia trees! Even giant pedalai trees only get 120-150 feet tall.

I have seen many trees in Kerala with maximum 30 meters. Definitely these trees are much taller than Jack fruit trees.
There is similarity between Artocarpus hirsutus and Artocarpus chama: fruits bear only on the branches,not on the trunk.

Already the author corrected the height, it was misprint :)

ANJILI
Anjili (A. hirsutus) is an evergreen tree to 70 m in height which grows in the wet forests of the Western Ghats Mountains in southern India from sea level to 1200 m (4000'). The juvenile leaves are pinnatifid, to 50 by 35 cm in size, while the mature leaves are 25 by 12 cm, elliptic to ovate.

The yellow to orange fruit, which is up to 8 cm across and 400 g in weight, varies in shape from round to ellipsoid, and is covered with closely set rigid protuberances like the marang, but pointed. The flesh of the ripe fruit is dark yellow or reddish yellow in colour, and of a subacid flavour. There are many of these delicious mealy-textured segments which melt in your mouth. Apart from being eaten out of hand, anjili may be fried. The seeds also are good fried, and taste like peanuts.
