I need to find a spot to plant a 4ft Kwai Muk I have. It has been waiting in a container ready to go for the last year. How does Kwai Muk perform in part shade?

surprisingly the one I saw was crowded by other trees, and fruiting heavily still...but definitely had about 50% full sun, maybe more.

the tree is quite tall, and all the fruit gets to be so high up in the tree, it's out of reach...I'm thinking full sun is best if possible to keep the tree shorter....and also this tree should be pruned to keep less than 20ft

could this fruit be considered a substantial food such as jackfruit and marang? One thing I like about marang is one or maybe two fruits is going to be enough for a meal. also to the person who said they like jackfruit more than marang...perhaps try going to Davao and trying the marangs there., with marang around I simply don't crave jackfruit at all, I didn't even try any jackfruit while in the philippines because I was plenty happy with the marangs

I would consider it more of a snack type fruit. The fruit are about the same size as a fig.

Ok, so who has a good selection that can eventually be distributed for grafting purposes?  I would like to know what options are out there in terms of already-tested seedling varieties that are worthwhile.

I'm planning on propagating a great tasting one once I get some root stocks going.

I got seeds from you Luc, in November, and 2 of 5 seeds are just now starting to send out the radicle.  No special treatment on the seeds, and ambient SoCal temps.

So how long will it take for it to germinate? I have a couple seeds coming. Temps will be 68F minimum at night time.
Thanks,

Do you keep the soil moist during all that time? Or let it dry out, then water again? I don't wanna cause the seeds to rot due to too much water.
Thanks,
