Marang Grows And Bears Fruit In Luzon, Something Many People In Luzon Don't Know
Ripe Marang that’s fully mature on the tree is very delicious like this one in photo.

Marang, known in botany as Artocarpus odoratissimus, can grow well and fruit well in Luzon. That’s something many people in Luzon don’t know. But this tree should not be grown alone in very windy areas. We know of somebody in Tanay, Rizal who planted his seedlings in a very windy area and was so greatly disappointed. Wind can’t easily pass through the thick big leaves.

Anyway, grow the Marang where there are other big trees so that there will be some buffer from strong winds. Our own two Marang trees are near big mango trees.

If one can grow Marang in commercial volume near Manila, he can capture a big lucrative market in the metropolis. The trouble with Marang is that it does not have a long shelf life. The fruits from Mindanao which are sent to Manila are harvested when they are not optimally mature. So the quality is not good.

At any rate, healthy Marang seedlings are now available at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. The seeds came from selected fruits from Davao. Those interested may contact Rose of the Sarian Farm at 0915-002-1368.
