Marang is found growing naturally in
Sarawak and Borneo (Kalimantan). Cultivated as well as growing wild in the Philippines, Marang is
uncommonly cultivated in Hawaii.
Marang, like the breadfruit, is a tree,
which can grow up to 25 m tall and have a 40 cm diameter trunk with low
buttresses. Marang leaves are oval-shaped, large, and rough like sandpaper.
is studded with short, soft, greenish yellow spines. When ripe, it produces a strong, penetrating fruity odor. The rind
is thick and fleshy. The flesh is separated into segments clinging to the
central core and each segment contains a seed surrounded by a sweet, juicy
coating that is the edible part of the fruit. The fruit is considered
superior in flavor to either Jakfruit or Cempedak.
The appearance of the fruit can be regarded as an intermediate shape between
the jackfruit and the breadfruit. The fruit is round to oblong, 15-20 cm
long and 13 cm broad, and weighing about 1 kg. The fruit average weight about 1 kg.
The thick rind is covered with soft, broad spines. They become hard and brittle as the fruit matures.
The fruit does not fall to the ground when ripe. It shopuld be harvested while
still hard, and left to ripen until soft. Marang fruits yellow when ripe. The ripe fruit is opened by cutting the rind around,
twisting and gently pulling. The interior of the fruit is somewhat similar
to a Jakfruit, but the color is white and the flesh is softer and way better tasting.

Marang tree is medium-sized to large. It grows to about 25 meters with a
trunk diameter of 40 cm. It could grow in a wide range of soil types-from
light to heavy soils-but it will grow better in deep, loamy soil with a pH
ranging from 5.5-8. It also yields best in places that are elevated at 800 m
above sea level.
It is propagated by budding, grafting, and marching.
Marang is a popular fruit dessert. After all, it is nutritious; it contains
protein, fat, carbohydrates, crude fiber, ash, calcium, phosphorus, iron,
retinol, beta-carotene, vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and
Fruits are 16 cm long, 13 cm in diameter, and weighs about 1,000 to 1,800
grams. The thick, fleshy rind is thickly studded with greenish, yellowish,
blunt spines. Inside it is a white, soft, sweet, and aromatic flesh from
which many whites seeds easily separate. The fruit is also highly perishable
that’s why it is carefully harvested by cutting its peduncle and then
placing it in woven baskets or boxes.
The fruit has also a strong scent especially when it is ripe. Once opened,
it should be consumed immediately or in just a few hours as it easily loses
flavor and oxidizes.
should be allowed to harden
for at least two months when these are at least 1 foot tall with three
pairs of leaves each. The ideal distance between seedlings in an open
field is 6 m x 6 m in a square system. It can be intercropped while it
is still unproductive. Marang can start to bear fruit at 4 to 5 years of age.
This tropical fruit tree will not thrive in regions where temperature falls
below 32°. Marang looks like jackfruit and seeded breadfruit, but it is far
superior in quality to either of these. Indigenous in Borneo, Marang is
popularly grown especially from July to September.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional items)
My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Domestic S/H includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can't really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, 2-3 days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.
For this reason uninsurable.
When you order a plant we assume you are prepared to care for it.
Please have potting media and a container prepared for your plant
before it arrives. Shipping can be stressful on a plant, and any
mistakes that you make upon arrival can stress the plant further,
which is not good. Proper care is critical upon arrival. It is your
responsibility to know how to care for the plant.
Not every plant that I order through
the mail survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I
order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there
is no way to know what kind of conditions it will endure in the trip
to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered
to your door. Live arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to
Please Do NOT email me a week after potting your plant, and make a claim it

delivery confirmation to make any claim.

Rare Palm Seeds

Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised.
Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at
seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements,
refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.
Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such
as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather
conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as
temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These
factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and
risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform
properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
Mahalo & Aloha!!
